Tony Jones QC calls to English bar as Advocacy by Brodies grows
Brodies’ solicitor advocate Tony Jones QC was called to the English bar in a ceremony conducted at Middle Temple last week.
Mr Jones is the only QC in Scotland to be accredited by the Law Society of Scotland as an expert in both professional negligence law and construction law. He frequently represents clients in property, professional negligence, construction, corporate and contact disputes.
He said: “I am delighted to have been called to the bar in England and Wales and, along with David and Fiona’s qualifying as solicitor advocates, our clients will benefit from our continued commitment towards providing market-leading litigation and advocacy practices.
“We provide a full service for our clients across the UK, from instigation to final determination or resolution, which is relevant to individuals, businesses and the public sector, giving our clients a wider choice of representation across the jurisdictions.”
Mr Jones’ appointment comes after Brodies’ senior associate Fiona McLeod and associate David Ford were introduced to court as solicitor advocates last month.
Ms McLeod said: “As a litigator in the Sheriff Court, I have always been eager to develop my advocacy skills and obtain higher rights of audience to appear in the Supreme Courts.
“Since joining Brodies in 2019, I have been impressed with the in-house advocacy offering and I am delighted to now join Advocacy by Brodies and look forward to working with colleagues, providing a full service offering to clients.”
