From 1st January 2021, Lorna Badham and Ben Close will take up their positions playing a vital role in the professional association for barristers.

Lorna who specialises in personal injury, clinical negligence and employment law, and Ben, a specialist criminal practitioner, found out this week that they had been chosen as part of a select few from a large field of candidates for Bar Council election.

Chambers have always striven to be at the forefront of legal expertise in this country and for Lorna and Ben to be chosen shows just how highly respected they are amongst their peers. We are very proud of them.

We are sure that they will further enhance the reputation of the Bar Council during their elected time.

Once again, huge congratulations to Lorna and Ben, a sentiment we know will not only be echoed by all here at St Philips but also by many throughout the profession.
