Hailsham Chambers is proud to announce that Simon Howarth will be appointed Queen’s Counsel. Our congratulations to Simon, who will become Hailsham’s 10th silk when he makes his declaration before the Lord Chancellor at the ceremony in Westminster Hall. The date of the ceremony is still subject to confirmation.
Simon specialises in Professional Negligence and has long been recognised as a leading practitioner in the field: Chambers UK and Legal 500 describe him as being “a go-to lawyer for that kind of work.”, “He’s excellent. A first-class, very knowledgeable barrister, he knows the financial services regulations inside out” and “Simon is technically excellent. He has in depth knowledge of professional negligence particularly in the financial services sector.”
