Election of New Head and Deputy Head of Chambers

1MCB is delighted to announce the election of John Benson QC and Benjamin Hawkin as Head and Deputy Head of Chambers, respectively.

Chambers wishes to take this opportunity to thank outgoing Head and Deputy Head Lord Gifford QC and Jeffrey Yearwood for their leadership and unstinting hard work.  We are pleased that both will continue to practise from 1MCB. 

John Benson QC said: "These are exciting times for 1MCB and to have been elected Head of Chambers is a great honour. Tony Gifford has set the bar very high and it will be a formidable challenge to follow in his illustrious footsteps. I look forward to working with Ben Hawkin and all members to build on the success and reputation of our set".
