Chambers' 25th Anniversary

The Joint Heads, members, staff and over 230 guests proudly celebrated 1 Garden Court’s 25th Anniversary with a reception at the Victoria and Albert museum on 25th June. Janet Bazley QC paid tribute to the principles of excellence and friendliness on which Chambers was founded, by Alison Ball QC and others, as a specialist Family Law set, 25 years ago.  Charles Geekie QC led the toast to Alison, Chambers and the next 25 years.  It was a memorable occasion, in a unique setting, and a very fitting way to celebrate such an important anniversary.  Chambers was delighted to welcome members of the judiciary, former members of Chambers and guests to share the celebrations.
