Matrix adds 50th member to media team

Matrix Chambers has hired its 50th member to boost the set’s media group. Lorna Skinner joins Matrix from One Brick Court, where she has developed a practice focusing on defamation and privacy. Cases Skinner has worked on during the past year include acting for the claimant in two separate libel claims brought by police officers against Associated Newspapers and the BBC. Skinner’s arrival means Matrix has doubled the number of its tenants in the five years since its establishment.
