Alexander Cameron QC

Chambers is sad to announce the retirement, through ill health, of Alexander Cameron QC from practice at the Bar, and as head of these chambers.

Alex was called to the Bar in 1986, and became a member of chambers, then of Victor Durand QC in Queen Elizabeth Building, in 1987. He took silk in 2003 and was elected head of chambers in March 2010. Widely acknowledged to be one of the best silks at the Criminal Bar, Alex had a stellar practice in crime, commercial crime, fraud, inquests and professional disciplinary tribunals. He was instructed in many of the highest-profile fraud cases of the last 10 years, and was consistently recognised by his professional colleagues to be a leader in the many fields in which he practised.

He was a member of the CBA / Bar Council VHCC remuneration committee and appeared pro bono at first instance and in the Court of Appeal for those defendants who were unable to instruct the barristers of their choice as a result of the dispute over the Government’s initial VHCC package.

Alex has been a popular colleague and friend for over 30 years, and an inspirational head of chambers. We wish him a speedy recovery and he and his wife, Sarah, and their two children, our very best wishes for the future.
