Brick Court Chambers are pleased to announce that Alastair Sutton will be joining chambers as a door tenant on the 5th April 2011.
Alastair Sutton joins chambers after a successful career at the European Commission and latterly as a partner at White and Case in Brussels.
Alastair Sutton will continue to practise in a wide range of EU law areas (reflecting his experience as a senior EU official), including the internal and external law of the Single Market (especially financial and related services), competition and state aids and international economic law. Alastair comments: "It is a privilege to join Chambers and to have the opportunity to develop Brick Court's presence in Brussels. It will be a pleasure to work with many old friends and colleagues in the European law team at Brick Court, who have done so much to develop EU law in England. I also look forward to working with colleagues who specialise in financial services, at a time of unprecedented regulatory activity in the EU in this field."
Joint Head of Chambers Jonathan Hirst QC comments "Alastair Sutton brings a very considerable amount of experience to Brick Court Chambers. His working relationship with many of our EU team makes his integration into our practice seamless. His global perspective and insight on the law of the Single Market augments our already formidable team."
