St Philips Chambers has announced that its senior clerk, Colin Hedley, has left chambers to pursue other opportunities.
Hedley has been a stalwart of the Leeds legal community for almost 50 years. He spent 17 of those in the Lord Chancellor’s Department, working in the County Court, High Court and Crown Court and within the audit and administration teams. For the last 30 years he has worked as a senior barrister’s clerk.
Director of clerking at St Philips, Joe Wilson, said: “Colin was instrumental in the merger between Chancery House Chambers and St Philips Chambers in 2014. The members and staff owe him a debt of gratitude for this, and the many years of service he has given to chambers.”
First junior clerk Stephen Render has assumed responsibility for clerking at the chambers in Leeds pending a management review.
