His forthcoming Oxford University Press book ‘The Arms Trade and International Criminal Law’ (OUP, 2022) explores how the legal cultures of international justice have prioritised the prosecution of military and political figures to the exclusion of commercial actors.

He was called to the Bar of England and Wales in 2011 and is a member of the Honourable Society of Lincoln's Inn.
