39 Essex Chambers is delighted to announce being named Chambers of the Year and Alison Foster QC Barrister of the Year at the Modern Law Awards on Thursday 10th November 2016.
The awards, which were held at the Hurlingham Club, London, are now in its fourth year and were launched to celebrate and identify sparkling talent, success and best practice in the modern legal services arena.
Alison Foster QC is joint Head of Chambers and her practice is underpinned by her long-standing expertise as a public and administrative lawyer and consists of human rights, commercial matters and a particular involvement in regulation and tax. She practises at the highest levels in each of these areas striving to keep a broad based public law practice across them all. In addition to the Deepcut Inquest into the death of Cheryl James, a young army recruit found dead at Deepcut barracks in 1995, she has had a handful of reported Court of Appeal appearances on tax and commercial matters recently, one of which is proceeding to the Supreme Court and a selection of confidential regulatory cases, and ongoing appearances in the Hague concerning international civil servants.
