All change at Brighton & Hove with new panel

Brighton & Hove City Council has established a new list of preferred barristers following a review that has seen both Francis Taylor Building and Cloisters axed from the panel.

The review has seen the establishment of three distinct panels, one for administrative law, the second for civil and criminal work and a third for family and childcare. Advice on administrative law will now be provided solely by Eldred Tabachnik QC’s and James Goudie QC’s 11 King’s Bench Walk, while One Crown Office Row (One COR) will supply both civil and criminal law advice. Both sets were on the previous panel. Anthony Scrivener QC’s 2-3 Gray’s Inn Square has also been appointed to the civil/crime panel.

A third panel for family and childcare, formerly known as childcare and social services, comprises 22 Old Buildings, One COR, and 14 Gray’s Inn Square, which replaced One Garden Court.

Brighton & Hove in-house lawyer Dianne Bates said: “We set up the original panel as part of our best-value review. The recent review was building on that best value.”
