Speaking to the Evening Standard, Oscar stated:

‘I was an androgynous kid who often got mistaken for a girl, sometimes even by my own grandma! When I was six years old, I was cast as Elizabeth I in the school play. Fast forward two decades and I am now battling it out in a different type of performance, in court, trying to get the best result for my clients who have faced discrimination.’

Oscar is the first publicly recognised non-binary barrister in the UK. Oscar undertakes a range of civil and public law work, including employment, human rights, commercial and property/housing. Oscar has lots of experience representing trans and non-binary clients in a number of areas in civil and public law.
