Keating Chambers has elected John Marrin QC as its new head of chambers following the appointment of Vivian Ramsey QC to the High Court. Marrin will take over for five years on 27 October. Ramsey is due to be sworn in as a judge in November. Marrin has been a member of Keating for nearly 30 years and was previously the chambers’ deputy head and treasurer. His manifesto included a plan to grow expertise outside of Keating’s core specialities of technology and construction law.
