Congratulations to Matthew Withers and David Reader joining 1COR as tenants - Oct 2018
David is developing a successful practice across a range of areas of chambers’ work with a particular focus upon civil law and immigration. He joined chambers as a tenant in October 2018 following the successful completion of his pupillage.
Prior to coming to the bar, David worked for several years in Local Government and the Civil Service. He also regularly appeared as an advocate in appeals to the First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) and continues to accept instructions in this area, as Counsel.
He studied law as a mature student in 2015, graduating first in his year, before being called to the Bar in 2017. Throughout his legal studies, David volunteered at Stonewall, the LGBT rights charity.
David accepts instructions across a broad range of civil work.
He has appeared in court dealing with interim hearings, small claims, personal injury and landlord and tenant matters
David accepts instructions in a wide-range of immigration, nationality and asylum matters.
He acts both for appellants and for the Secretary of State for the Home Department from whom he accepts regular instruction. This expertise affords him an excellent knowledge and understanding of the relevant law, the First Tier Tribunal process and case management & strategy.
David accepts instruction in all areas of Police Law. This includes ASBIs, disclosure matters, DVPOs, SHPOs, SROs and notification orders.
David accepts instruction in private law children matters and has represented clients in a range of hearings.
David also has experience of injunctive proceedings such as non-molestation orders and occupation orders, representing clients from ex-parte applications through to final hearings.
David’s knowledge and experience in immigration and nationality law enables him to advise on such matters within family proceedings. For example, he recently advised a Local Authority on the nationality of a child involved in care proceedings.
