Sadly this month we have said goodbye to two long-standing members of Chambers: Giles Pinkney and Keith Miller have both retired from practice. Keith continues to sit so we may all see him around. Giles is (literally) sailing off into the sunset.
We have, at the same time, been delighted to welcome two new tenants: Annabel Beattie (formerly of New Park Court Chambers) and Janine Richards (formerly of Amicus Chambers) to strengthen our family team.
Annabel was a solicitor for 10 years before being called to the Bar in 2005. She brings extensive experience of financial remedy and Children Act proceedings. She also has a diverse civil practice, acting for both Claimants and Defendants. Her practice base covers the whole of the North East and she looks forward to working with local solicitors over the coming years.
Janine Richards is returning from a career break. She will be well known to many local solicitors and is returning to undertake Children Act work, no doubt swiftly picking up where she left off.
