Will Durrands


In April 2021, Will became a Member of Chambers following the successful completion of his pupillage.

Will comes to Chambers after working for a number of years as a paralegal in two London criminal defence and human rights firms where he gained experience in all areas of criminal law, extradition, regulatory (particularly those involving the Solicitors Regulation Authority) and public law matters.

More recently, Will was part of the defence team in what was then the highest value private prosecution to date. Following that he worked almost exclusively with those arrested and prosecuted following the Extinction Rebellion demonstrations in 2018/19, this work included a Judicial Review of the CPS charging decisions.
