Andrew Hitchmough awarded Silk
Chambers are delighted to announce that Andrew Hitchmough has been appointed Queens Counsel.
The award, more commonly known as QC (or Silk), involves a rigorous application procedure including a detailed paper application and interview process. Helen Pitcher, Chair of the QC Appointments Panel said: “The selection process is an exacting one. We collect confidential assessments from judges, fellow advocates and professional clients, all of whom will have seen the applicant at work. Applicants are also interviewed by two members of the panel. The whole panel then discusses the evidence on each applicant.”
Andrew will be formally appointed in the annual Silk ceremony at the House of Lords on Wednesday 27th March 2013.
