James Townsend has been appointed as a Circuit Judge


Chambers is delighted to announce that James Townsend has been appointed as a Circuit Judge and that he will be sitting in Plymouth from 22nd January.

James has been Head of Chambers for over three years and has led us with great good humour and wisdom. He has spent the vast majority of his professional life so far as a member of Chambers and has been a good friend, trusted counsellor and highly respected colleague to so many of us. We will miss him hugely, but we are looking forward to watching him bring all those skills and talents from which we have benefitted to the Bench. We are so proud to congratulate him on this appointment.
