Chloe Shuffrey

Profile

Chloe joined Chambers in 2016 upon the successful completion of her pupillage. She seeks to establish a broad practice in Chambers’ areas of expertise.

During her pupillage, Chloe appeared as sole counsel in the High Court (Bankruptcy Court) and County Court. Chloe is regularly instructed to appear in court in both trials and interlocutory applications, and undertakes a range of pleading and advisory work.

Chloe has a particular interest in insolvency, company law and commercial disputes, having assisted her pupil supervisors in a wide range of matters in these areas, including a high profile action brought by a company in liquidation against its former bankers and administrators alleging negligence, breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty. During her pupillage, Chloe also gained exposure to professional negligence claims, travel and personal injury claims (involving jurisdictional and conflicts of law issues), Privy Council appeals, administrative and public law, employment matters and landlord and tenant disputes.

Before starting pupillage, Chloe spent just under a year at a magic circle law firm, where she worked in the dispute resolution department on a high profile US-led regulatory investigation into a major bank. In 2012-2013, Chloe spent seven months working for a human rights non-governmental organisation which focuses on the right to privacy, where she drafted substantial legal and policy documents, including an OECD complaint against a company potentially in breach of the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, and memos on various pieces of draft legislation’s compatibility with international human rights standards.

Chloe studied Classics at Trinity Hall, University of Cambridge, graduating in 2010 with a Double First Class degree. She then completed a Masters in Ancient Philosophy at New College, Oxford University in 2011, before converting to law.
