James Counsell, Matthew Phillips and Fiona Scolding appointed Silk

Outer Temple Chambers is delighted to congratulate three members, James Counsell, Matthew Phillips and Fiona Scolding, on their successful applications to Silk.

This is a fantastic personal achievement for James, Matthew and Fiona, given the highly competitive nature of the lengthy competition.

James was called to the Bar in 1984 and has built up a leading practice in clinical and professional negligence and in personal injury, acting both for claimants and for defendants.

Matthew’s practice focuses on Clinical Negligence, Personal Injury and Sport. Called to the Bar in 1993, he specialises in asbestos related disease claims and catastrophic head and spinal injuries.

Fiona was called to the Bar in 1996. She is a specialist public law barrister, who has particular expertise in the areas of education, community care, equality, healthcare and procurement law.

The award of Queen’s Counsel to three members of Outer Temple Chambers across both our business and health departments also reflects the excellence of our clerking teams.

We would like to thank all of our clients who have supported James, Matthew and Fiona through their careers.

The ceremony will take place on Monday 13 February 2017.
