Toby commenced his pupillage in September 2020 and is currently under the supervision of Neil Griffin.

Prior to studying the law, Toby worked as a strategy consultant, where he gained a wide range of experience of matters from fracking technology to hedge fund events portfolios. Toby has also marshalled at the High Court of Hong Kong, with trials ranging from murder to human trafficking, as well as observing the trial of the leaders of Hong Kong’s pro-democracy Umbrella movement.
