23 Essex St raid gives 1COR four female silks

One Crown Office Row has hired Joanna Glynn QC from 23 Essex Street, taking the set’s tally of female silks to four.

Glynn, who was called in 1983 and took silk in 2002, said she was moving chambers in a bid to develop the disciplinary and regulatory aspects of her practice.

One Crown Office Row’s head of chambers Philip Havers QC said Glynn, who was 23 Essex Street’s healthcare regulatory and disciplinary team lead barrister, is well known for her work for the General Medical Council and other professional disciplinary bodies.

“Her practice there, in related regulatory work and in medical crime, make for an excellent fit with us,” added Havers.
