Premonition200The list of newly appointed QCs in England & Wales was published by the Ministry of Justice on Monday.

107 barristers and solicitor-advocates have been honoured this year.

Of the total, 48 have made appearances in the High Court in the last three years and, of those, 15 have made only one appearance while five have made over ten.

Of those appearing more than five times, Richard Wilson (3 Stones Buildings) has been successful for his clients in all his appearances and Cathryn McGahey (Temple Garden Chambers) has won almost three quarters of her cases. Our congratulations go to them and all the newly-appointed silks.

Premonition has the world’s largest legal database from which this information has been provided. Our clients use Premonition to provide detailed analysis on all aspects of High Court cases. Barristers’ chambers, Solicitors’ firms, General Counsel of large businesses and corporations, litigation funders and insurance companies are benefiting from this service.

The ethics of the SRA’s social media warning notice

Mena Ruparel

Social media portals are regularly used by firms and those who work for law firms in both professional and personal capacities. Their informal nature and the fast pace of use makes it all too easy for regulated people to get carried away with online discussions or comments which can fall foul of the regulator. This is more likely to happen on social media platforms as these are virtual, accessed in the solicitor’s own time and space. It can be easy to forget that solicitors are regulated just the same at 11pm on their home computer as they are at 3pm in the office or at court.
