Matthew Butt QC appointed as a Deputy High Court Judge

Chambers is pleased to announce that Matthew Butt QC has been appointed a Deputy High Court Judge. His appointment will take effect on 1st October 2021.

The appointment followed an open competition by the Judicial Appointments Commission. Although the appointment is to all three Divisions of the High Court, it is planned that Matthew will hear cases in the Queen’s Bench Division. The role of Deputy High Court Judge is reserved for those who have the experience and expertise to deal with very complex cases which would otherwise be undertaken by High Court Judges.

Matthew will sit in the High Court for up to six weeks each year, and will also continue to practice full time from Chambers.
