Carlo joined Chambers in October 2011 following successful completion of his pupillage; he has a broad practice across all areas of Chambers' work, and has a particular interest in commercial, insurance, and professional negligence matters.
He is regularly in court both on trials and interlocutory matters, for both claimants and defendants; he has appeared in both the High Court and County Courts across the country, as well as in the Privy Council. The regularity of his court work means that he is very good on his feet, and is praised for his meticulous and forceful cross examination.
His present case-load includes two significant cases proceedings before the High Court of Antigua and Barbuda, and a case put at £20 million+ in the Mercantile Court. He is also presently sole counsel for two of the Defendants in a $26 million claim in the (English) High Court concerning alleged professional negligence of Spanish and English lawyers said to have been conducting an arbitration in the US and then resisting the enforcement of its award in England.
Carlo read law at Downing College, Cambridge where he was the President of the Cambridge University Law Society. Before coming to the Bar, he spent a year working for PricewaterhouseCoopers, and later developing business and service monitoring systems for a charity. His experience gives him the ability to communicate effectively with a wide range of people, work well either as part of a team or individually, and bring an acute commercial perspective to the issues at hand.
