Susie Alegre appointed as a Deputy High Court Judge

Chambers is pleased to announce that our Associate Tenant Susie Alegre 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 Susie 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.

Susie will sit in the High Court for a minimum of around 30 days a year, and will continue her work as a consultant and as an Associate in Chambers.
