Axiom welcomes new silk appointments
12 September 2012
Axiom Advocates has welcomed the appointment of three new silks, Anna Poole, Sean Smith and Alastair Duncan.
The rank of Queen's Counsel is generally reserved for those who have distinguished themselves in practice in the Supreme Courts. Advocates and Solicitors with Rights of Audience in the Supreme Courts are eligible to apply to the Lord Justice General, Scotland's senior judge. Before making recommendations, the Lord Justice General consults other judges, the Lord Advocate, the Dean of the Faculty of Advocates and the President of the Law Society of Scotland.
Alistair Clark QC, Director of Axiom stated that "With three of the six new QC appointments this year coming from Axiom, the talent we have in the stable has again been recognised. It is a pleasure to see these able colleagues taking silk and on behalf of all of us I wish them every success in this exciting next stage in their careers.”
