Attorney General’s Panel Appointments

02 Mar 2011

Chambers is delighted to announce that Robert Palmer has been elevated to the A Panel, Ronit Kreisberger has been elevated to the B Panel and Ewan West has been appointed to the Attorney General’s C panel.

Robert’s recent human rights cases have included acting on behalf of the government in the House of Lords in the challenge to the controversial “deportation with assurances” programme, and to the use of “closed evidence” to support the deportation of those believed to present a threat to national security.  The ‘technical and incisive’ Robert ‘has appeared in a number of High Court proceedings, including acting for the developer in Phillips v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government’ – Legal 500.

Ronit is widely recognised as a leading senior junior in EU Law.  Following 7 years as a senior associate and Solicitor-Advocate at Herbert Smith, she joined Chambers in 2005 where she “quickly won a reputation at the Bar” – Chambers UK.  In January 2007 Ronit was listed by The Lawyer as one of the year’s “Hot 100” in which she was described as a “rising star”.

Ewan has considerable experience of dealing with Government departments, regulatory and other public sector bodies, including the European Commission, senior figures in the private sector and Ministers.  He has been closely involved in the preparation of primary and secondary domestic legislation and has represented the UK in negotiations over the passage of Community legislation.
