Chelsea is a qualified barrister and New York attorney. She has an eclectic background, having previously worked in a variety of roles whilst completing her legal training, including as a clerk and paralegal. Chelsea successfully transferred to the Bar of England and Wales and was called in 2019. Since then, she has worked as a compliance consultant, legal assistant, document review lawyer and advocate, keeping her legal knowledge and skills current.
As a compliance consultant, Chelsea gained in-depth knowledge and a practical understanding of the regulatory requirements and obligations of BSB, SRA and FCA-regulated individuals and entities. This experience has been invaluable when dealing with cases concerning regulatory matters. Working as a County Court advocate gave her an excellent foundation in various civil litigation matters and broadened her advocacy skills dramatically.
Chelsea has been exposed to a mixture of civil work and hearings and is regularly instructed as an advocate. Whilst she thoroughly enjoys advocacy work, Chelsea also enjoys drafting legal documents and providing tailored advice. She has spent time working alongside Clerksroom's Head of Media Law, giving her the opportunity to further develop her research and drafting skills, whilst experiencing media law matters (including defamation, harassment and data protection) in the High Court. She has continued to expand her knowledge and expertise and often works alongside senior members of the Media Law Team.
Having managed her own attorney practice for multiple years, Chelsea enjoys client interaction and prioritises high standards and client engagement within her work. She is a trained mediator and is accredited to undertake direct access work. Chelsea is based in London and the South East, but able to travel to court anywhere in the UK.
Due to the variety within the work Chelsea has been able to undertake she has experience in a broad range of civil work; however, the main bulk of her work and focus of her practice is in property, media and regulatory law.

“We have instructed Chelsea several times, often at short notice and with tight deadlines. Chelsea has been fantastic, nothing is too much trouble and she is always available to help. Chelsea goes above and beyond - even drawing up a checklist/table for the client to complete prior to a conference in order to make the best use of time. I have attended court with Chelsea on a few occasions and I agree with my clients in that she is professional yet down to earth and very good at explaining any issues to the client in a calm yet empathetic way. 10/10”
