Kirsty Brimelow QC appointed as a Deputy High Court Judge
Chambers is pleased to announce that Kirsty Brimelow QC has been appointed a Deputy High Court Judge. Her appointment will take effect on 1st October 2021.
The appointment followed an open competition by the Judicial Appointments Commission. Although the appointment is to all three Divisions of the High Court, it is planned that Kirsty will hear cases in the Queen’s Bench Division. The role of Deputy High Court Judge is reserved for those who have the experience and expertise to deal with very complex cases which would otherwise be undertaken by High Court Judges.
Kirsty will sit in the High Court for a minimum of around 30 days a year, and will also continue to practice full time from Chambers.
