Wilberforce Silk Announcements 2014
Wilberforce Chambers are delighted to announce that Jonathan Evans and Rupert Reed have both been appointed Queen’s Counsel in this year’s silk appointments.
Jonathan Evans has a broad commercial chancery practice, with a particular specialism in pensions.
His pensions practice covers all aspects of occupational and personal pension schemes and associated professional negligence. His commercial work covers contractual disputes generally and professional negligence across a range of professions, including in particular pension scheme actuaries.
Described as a “Clear thinker” Jonathan has a “wonderfully economical and efficient style as an advocate,” which makes him “very persuasive in argument.” He remains one of the most sought-out barristers at the Pensions Bar and has been present on almost all of the leading cases in the last year.
Rupert Reed has a wide-ranging Chancery Commercial practice as advisor and advocate with particular emphasis on work arising from commercial agreements made in the business of property investment funds or relating to the transfer, development, financing and management of commercial property.
Rupert won ‘Chancery Junior of the Year’ at the Chambers Bar Awards in 2013, having already been nominated for that award in 2012. He is identified as a ‘Leader at the Bar’ in Chambers Global 2014, and included in the Chambers 100: UK Bar list of the top 100 junior barristers.
