News from One Brick Court – Defamation & Privacy Set of the Year



In January 2017, in accordance with its constitution, One Brick Court will have a new Head of Chambers: Sir Edward Garnier QC, with Manuel Barca QC as deputy head. 

Andrew Caldecott QC, Head of Chambers for the past 10 years, said: “I’m delighted to hand over to old and trusted friends. It’s been a privilege and a pleasure to give a little back to a chambers which has given me so much. I look forward to playing my part in the future work and success of One Brick Court”. 

Sir Edward said: “Andrew has been head of chambers for 10 years, during a period of immense change for the Bar and its administration. He has taken chambers from strength to strength, as well as maintaining his own stellar practice, and it is a tribute to Andrew’s leadership that this year One Brick Court has once again been recognised as Defamation Set of the Year by Chambers & Partners at their annual awards. Andrew will, of course, continue to be a source of wise counsel to Manuel and me and to his many clients.” 

One Brick Court was awarded Defamation Set of the Year at the annual Chambers & Partners awards 2016. Chambers has been awarded the title on six previous occasions. 

One Brick Court is ranked in the new Chambers & Partners UK Bar Directory in “Defamation and Privacy” and “Data Protection”. The Directory acknowledges chambers as a “premier” set that is “home to a raft of leading experts”, with “an almost unparalleled depth of experience and expertise across the spectrum of media law.” Members are acknowledged to be at the “vanguard” of data protection and information law. The Directory ranks “exceptional” barristers at One Brick Court and includes positive client feedback on members of chambers across the board, including “eminent” leading silks and “talented” juniors. One Brick Court’s “very efficient and effective” clerking team are rightly recognised for the high-quality service they provide.
