The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) today (28 September) confirmed that Fountain Court barrister Nicholas Stadlen QC is to join the High Court bench.
Stadlen, who was called to the bar in 1976 and took silk in 1991, has been assigned to the Queen's Bench Division by the Lord Chief Justice.
The big-hitting silk is the last appointment to be made by the Lord Chancellor under the current appointment system, which is based on the provisions of the Constitutional Reform Act 2005.
The news of Stadlen's appointment, which The Lawyer revealed on 17 September, comes as the Lord Chancellor announced a flurry of appointments to the Tribunals Service.
Two solicitors, Julia Jones and Fiona Monk, along with barristers Richard James and Philip Lancaster have been appointed as chairmen of the Employment Tribunal, while Michael Coxon has been given the role of district chairman of the Social Security and Child Support Appeals Tribunal.
