Tom Leary and John Bethell appointed to the Attorney General’s C Panel of Civil Counsel

20 Essex Street is pleased to announce the appointment of Tom Leary and John Bethell to the Attorney General’s C Panel of Civil Counsel, which will take effect from 1 March 2019.

They join seven other barristers at 20 Essex Street who are already members of the Attorney General’s Civil and Public International Law Panels: Julie Anderson, Guglielmo Verdirame, Angharad Parry, Penelope Nevill, Kate Parlett, Belinda McRae and Philippa Webb.

Members of the Attorney General’s Panels are instructed to advise and represent Her Majesty’s Government in all areas of legal work, including the most high-profile government litigation.

Tom specialises in commercial litigation, arbitration and public law. His recent work includes a US$200 million arbitration claim against a Caribbean state for breach of a development agreement and a judicial review challenge to the Welsh Government’s Air Quality Plan. He previously served as the Judicial Assistant to Lord Mance and was appointed to the Welsh Government B Panel of Junior Counsel (Public Law) in 2017.

John specialises in public law and commercial disputes. Throughout 2018 he was instructed in Hoareau and Bancoult (No 5) v Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, the latest challenge to decisions on re-settlement of the British Indian Ocean Territory (judgment is expected in early 2019).
