The Members of Essex Court Chambers are pleased to announce that Edward Brown has been appointed to the Attorney General’s ‘A’ Panel of Counsel to the Crown and both Stephen Donnelly and Jackie McArthur have been appointed to the Attorney General’s ‘C’ Panel.
Edward is a very experienced trial advocate and regularly handles substantial cases as sole advocate and as part of a team. He is recognised by both of the leading directories as a top litigator at the junior bar. He is ranked in Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 in commercial dispute resolution, employment, media, entertainment and sport and VAT.
Stephen’s recent work includes both contentious and advisory matters in public international law. His practice also includes fraud, trusts disputes, claims against directors, insolvency, shipping, and employment. He has appeared as sole counsel in the Commercial Court, Chancery Division, Employment Tribunal, and in arbitration.
Jackie has a broad practice spanning Chambers’ areas of expertise. She practises primarily in commercial litigation and arbitration, and in international disputes – encompassing public international law, the conflict of laws, and investor-state arbitration. Jackie appears regularly as counsel in the Commercial Court, the Chancery Division and in the County Court, and has had experience in arbitrations under the ICSID, ICC, LCIA and UNCITRAL Rules.
The Attorney General maintains four advisory panels of junior counsel to undertake civil and EU work for all government departments. There are three London panels (an A panel for senior juniors, a B panel for middle juniors, a C panel for junior juniors) and a regional panel.
