Another First for Ely Place
Congratulations to Nicholas Stewart QC, who has just been awarded a First Class Honours BA degree in German and Spanish by London University after a 4 year evening course at Birkbeck College. Ely Place Chambers now has a small but strong group of German speakers – including Max Cole and Nicholas and led by Philipp Simon, who is a German national and a member of the Düsseldorf and Luxembourg Bars as well as the Bar of England & Wales. We also have fluent French speakers in Jeffrey Bacon and Ali Reza Sinai (and Philipp and Nicholas can handle French documents quite easily). Both our French and German groups are well-equipped to handle cross-border disputes, including arbitration and mediation – whether by direct access from overseas lawyers or with involvement of English solicitors.
