The 36 Group welcomes nine new members to 36 Public and Human Rights

1st March 2021

Chambers is delighted to welcome nine specialist immigration practitioners, who join The 36 Group together with their clerk, Phil Silverman.  This addition brings our total membership to 177. 

The group join us from Lamb Building and are described by Legal 500 as a ‘formidable immigration team'. 

The 36 Group is currently divided into five principal and distinct specialist brands, each market-leading in its own right: 36 Family, 36 Crime, 36 Commercial, 36 Public and Human Rights and 36 Stone. The new members will add strength to our existing immigration team who sit within the 36 Public and Human Rights practice group.

The Joint Heads of Chambers at The 36 Group, said, “Chambers is thrilled by the opportunity to welcome nine new members to 36 Public and Human Rights. This move adds significant strength to our highly sought-after immigration team and follows in the footsteps of a long run of extremely successful recruitment at The 36 Group.”

Simon Harding, Head of 36 Public and Human Rights, said “This is an extremely exciting opportunity for our immigration team to continue to build on recent successes, and we are pleased to be welcoming new colleagues who are highly motivated to play a part in driving this team forward over the coming years.” 

Eric Fripp, a senior member of the team joining from Lamb Building, stated, “We are delighted to be joining 36 Public and Human Rights.  This unites us with impressive colleagues already in the set.  The critical mass provided by a larger team allows potential for us develop into one of the major forces in immigration, asylum, and nationality at the Bar.  Across the whole of the new team, we are committed to the pursuit of excellence, both in publicly funded and in private and pro bono work, including advocacy at all levels from the First-tier Tribunal to the UK Supreme Court and international courts and tribunals.”

The members of the group are Eric Fripp, Cecilia Hulse, Sandra Akinbolu, Raphael Jesurum, Ellis Wilford, Jane Elliott-Kelly, Deborah Revill, Amy Childs and Theo Lester.

Members of 36 Public and Human Rights can be instructed by contacting the team’s clerks Everton Wedderburn and Phil Silverman on 020 7421 8052 or on
