Radcliffe Chambers expands its commercial offering with the recruitment of two new members

 

Commercial barristers Caroline Bolton and Anthony Dearing joined Radcliffe Chambers in January 2018, bringing with them experience in commercial, chancery, banking, property, and local government disputes and transactions.

Caroline Bolton was called to the Bar in 1998 and has a busy commercial, chancery and local government practice. She has extensive experience obtaining urgent injunctive relief. Her recent work includes representing the investors in a multi-party action against Yorkshire Bank on a claim arising out of the Arck LLP fraud and acting for the local authority in Amey Wye Valley Limited v Herefordshire District Council, a complex dispute relating to a £200 million infrastructure contract.

Anthony Dearing started his career in the Enforcement Division of the UK Financial Conduct Authority and developed his practice at leading law firms Eversheds LLP and Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP, before becoming a self-employed barrister. His practice encompasses financial regulation, international banking & finance, commercial litigation, local government, and public procurement disputes and transactions. He is currently acting for a group of claimants against a high street bank for breach of trust. Anthony was called to the Bar of England and Wales in 1998.

Fiona Fitzgerald, CEO of Radcliffe Chambers, said: “We are delighted to welcome Caroline and Anthony to Chambers. We are really looking forward to them joining us to assist with the increased demands of clients in our commercial, banking and finance and property areas. The addition of two new members is a significant step forward for our growth strategy.”

Radcliffe Chambers is a leading chancery and commercial set. It was described by Legal 500 UK Bar 2017 as “‘the chambers of choice’ for areas such as contentious trusts and probate, charity law, pensions, real estate, insolvency and general commercial litigation”.
