5RB welcomes new members

Desmond Browne QC, joint Head of 5RB, has welcomed our seven new members of Chambers:

The news that One Brick Court will be dissolving has saddened everyone at 5RB. Their members have been our much respected friends and adversaries for many years.

We are therefore delighted that Andrew Caldecott QC and six of his colleagues have decided to join 5RB, and Justin Rushbrooke QC and I look forward to welcoming them later in the year. Their arrival will consolidate the reputation of 5RB as the first choice for all aspects of media and communications law, including data protection and freedom of information.”

Joining 5RB along with Andrew Caldecott QC will be Jane Phillips, Aidan Eardley, Kate Wilson, Jonathan Scherbel-Ball, Clara Hamer and Ben Gallop.

Andrew Caldecott QC added,  After a painful time, it is an enormous pleasure for us to be welcomed so warmly by 5RB and we look forward together to the new and exciting opportunities ahead.”
