James Henderson appointed to A Panel

We are delighted to announce that the Attorney General’s Office has appointed James Henderson to the A panel of Junior Counsel to the Crown. The appointment is effective for 5 years from 1st September 2018.

Places on the Government Legal Department (GLD) panels are highly sought after as they allow Barristers to receive instructions from Government departments. The work is usually important and sensitive, often involving matters of policy and/or large sums of money.

Members of the A panel deal with the most complex cases. They will often appear against QC’s. There are usually only about 70 Barristers, drawn from all areas of the law, on the A panel. Members will generally be instructed where knowledge and experience of a particular field is required.

12 Members of our Chambers are currently on the GLD panels:
A Panel
Elizabeth Wilson, James Rivett, David Yates, James Henderson (effective 1st September 2018)

B Panel
Sadiya Choudhury, Laura Poots

C Panel
Thomas Chacko, Charles Bradley, Edward Waldegrave, Barbara Belgrano, Ben Elliott, Emma Pearce
