St Philips Barristers is delighted to welcome criminal specialist Zafar Ali QC as a Door Tenant. Called to the bar in 1994 and attaining Silk in 2012, Zafar acts exclusively as defence counsel and his experience encompasses a full spectrum of criminal law cases from tax evasion to terrorism.
Speaking on confirmation of his Door Tenancy, Zafar said:
“I came to Chambers because I wanted to continue to expand my Midlands practice utilising my door tenancy in Birmingham with the assistance of Andrew Rourke and the clerks team. Having co-defended with several top-quality silks from St Philips this move was an obvious choice. I am looking forward to working with the criminal team.”
Senior Criminal Clerk Andrew Rourke commented:
“Adding Zafar Ali QC to St Philips’ already stellar set of silks is excellent news. Zafar is a fierce defence advocate regularly instructed in the highest profile and most grave cases in the country including homicide, terrorism and high-value fraud matters. All at St Philips are very excited to welcome him.”
Zafar also practices from 23es, London.
