Lord Faulks QC appointed as Minister of State at the Ministry of Justice

Chambers is pleased to announce that Lord Faulks QC, a recent past Head of this Set, has been appointed to the office of Minister of Justice and will be serving in that capacity in the House of Lords as from 20 January 2014.  

This is a proud moment for Chambers and we wish Lord Faulks well in his new post. It will be a demanding office that he has been asked to fulfil, but we are confident that he will bring to that office all his undoubted legal abilities and universally recognised presentational skills.

It also give us great pleasure to be able to inform you that Lord Faulks will be returning to full-time practice in this Set once his term of office is completed at the conclusion of this Parliament. On his return to Chambers we anticipate that he will be in great demand and that those who currently instruct him will be keen to secure his services as one of the Bar's leading advocates once more.
