Brick Court Chambers is delighted to announce that Emma Mockford and Aaron Khan join chambers as tenants in July and September 2017 respectively.
Helen Davies QC, Joint Head of Chambers, said: “We warmly welcome both Emma and Aaron to chambers following the successful completion of their pupillages. They will develop commensurate practices in the future."
Emma Mockford graduated from the University of Oxford with a first class honours degree in jurisprudence, winning the All Souls Prize for the Best Performance in Public International Law Final Honour Schools. She also has a Master’s degree from King’s College London in EU competition law. Before coming to the Bar, Emma qualified as a solicitor at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP and practised as an associate in the firm’s dispute resolution department in London, specialising in EU and competition litigation and public law. During her time at Freshfields, Emma acted for and advised major corporate clients from a range of industries, including the financial, energy and telecommunications sectors, on both contentious and regulatory matters. Emma also acted pro bono for clients in various fora and spent time on secondment to the firm’s Brussels office.
Aaron Khan graduated from the University of Bristol with a first class honours degree in law. He subsequently obtained an LLM in European Union law from the College of Europe (Bruges), and achieved the highest overall mark on the LLM programme. Prior to pupillage, Aaron held academic roles at the University of Bristol, Cardiff University and New College of the Humanities, where he taught EU law and competition law. He has also published articles in journals such as the European Law Review and presented his research at conferences in Luxembourg and Madrid. During pupillage, Aaron worked on cases across chambers’ expertise. These included an appeal against the CMA’s so-called “pay-for-delay” decision, competition law damages claims, a civil fraud claim, proceedings to enforce an arbitral award involving issues of state aid, and judicial review claims concerning a range of EU law issues.
