Hugh Southey of Tooks Chambers, Stephen Knafler of Garden Court Chambers and Raza Husain of Matrix have all been appointed Queen’s Counsel, the highest accolade for a barrister. All three do plenty of non immigration work, I believe, but are very well known and respected in immigration circles.

It is richly deserved by all three, and it is nice to be able to report some good news!
