11KBW welcomes 7 new members as part of its growth strategy
30 Nov, 2012
11KBW has added seven new barrister members from rival set 4-5 Gray’s Inn Square in the last month.
Jonathan Moffett is recognised by the legal directories as a leading junior in public law, education law and local government law, and is ranked as one of the three top juniors in the country in education law. He has an extensive public law practice, and has a particular expertise in the interface between public law and human rights. Jonathan is a member of the Attorney-General’s A panel of counsel, the Welsh Government’s A panel of counsel, and the Equality and Human Rights Commission’s panel of counsel.
Paul Greatorex has a busy and successful practice in the areas of public law (including human rights), education law and employment law, as well as general business law. Other areas of specialisation include mental capacity and community care cases, immigration and prisons. Paul is a member of the Attorney-General’s B Panel of Counsel and in the legal directories is ranked in Administrative and Public Law, Education, and Court of Protection (Health and Welfare).
Paul and Jonathan will start with 11KBW in January 2013. The following have started in the last few weeks:
Charles Bourne and Andrew Sharland are highly rated barristers bringing top quality practices in public and regulatory law to help deepen 11KBW’s excellent position in these areas.
David Bedenham brings a highly regarded mixed litigation practice comprising public law work and commercial/tax litigation to help extend 11KBW’s business law services.
Sarah-Jane Davies adds a successful practice in public law and human rights, local government law, education law and employment law.
Heather Emmerson also has a highly regarded practice in public, regulatory, and commercial law and deepens 11KBW’s strengths in these areas. Since November 2011 Heather has been instructed in the Leveson Inquiry.
David Stead, Chief Executive of 11KBW, commented: “11KBW is pre-eminent in public and employment law3 and we are experiencing increasing demand from clients to expand our business law offerings. Our standards are exacting and identifying laterals of the necessary quality is not easy. Adding seven barristers of this calibre will help re-affirm our market-leading position and we aim to recruit more top quality people as part of our strategy to deepen and diversify what we do. All of our new members were in high demand from other top sets and we are delighted that they will develop their outstanding practices at 11KBW.”
