Atlantic Chambers welcomes Sarah Egan, who joins Chambers from St. Albans Chambers.
Prior to coming to the Bar Sarah read for a Ph.D. in German Literature and Philosophy and tutored undergraduates.

Between Call to the Bar and commencing Pupillage, Sarah worked as an in-house legal advisor to a commercial bank in the City. She provided legal advice on a broad spectrum of matters including banking and financial services law; insolvency and company law; corporate financial transactions; contracts; and landlord and tenant law. Sarah is pleased to be able to offer the benefit of this financial expertise and experience in Chancery and Commercial practice.
Sarah remains a Door Tenant at St Albans Chambers, where she has a predominantly Family practice.
