Midlands set gains London star

Birmingham’s St Philip’s Chambers has scooped a senior barrister from premier insolvency set 3-4 South Square.

Sandra Bristoll’s move to St Philip’s is a major coup for the 142-tenant Midlands set which is growing its commercial group, led by its head of chambers, John Randall QC.

Bristoll is making the leap after 14 years at 3-4 South Square due to “family reasons”. However she will retain an “associate” membership post at 3-4 South Square.

The barrister has acted in several key administrations, including Polly Peck and Barings. She was also a member of the Department of Trade and Industry’s treasury B panel from 1994 to 2001, specialising in director disqualifications.
