Retirement of Alastair Wilson KC and Roger Wyand KC

Chambers is sad to announce the retirement from practice of two former Heads of Chambers, Alastair Wilson K.C. and Roger Wyand K.C.

Alastair was called to the Bar in 1968 and took silk in 1987. Now, after a hugely successful career at the IP Bar and as a Recorder, Alastair has decided that it is time to devote his considerable energy and talents to renovating an old property in Norfolk. Chambers will really miss his deep knowledge of the law, his sense of mischief and fun and his DIY skills about chambers but not, perhaps, his collection of dubiously titled books.

Roger was called to the Bar in 1973. He took silk in 1997 and has sat as a Recorder and as a Deputy High Court Judge, earning accolades for his practical, no-nonsense approach. Although he is retiring from full time practice, Roger intends to continue to work as a mediator and arbitrator (when he is not in the stands at the Emirates watching Arsenal in action). Judging by how he dealt with clients and colleagues (with meetings being punctuated by laughter as well as by his words of considerable wisdom), we cannot recommend his skills in this regard too highly!
