The Lord Chancellor has announced the results of the Queen’s Counsel appointments today.
Five members of Essex Court Chambers have been appointed; Louise Hutton, Iain Quirk, David Davies, James Willan and Anna Dilnot.
The 2021 silk appointment ceremony is currently delayed due to the pandemic.
The chair of the selection panel Sir Alex Allan said: “We were particularly pleased that for the first year ever, the number of women appointed – 40, which amounts to 34 per cent of the total appointed, is almost equal to the proportion of women in the relevant segment of the profession.”
The members of Essex Court Chambers warmly congratulate all five members on their appointments.
