Neil Davy KC and Emma Sutton KC appointed as King’s Counsel

27th March 2023

We are delighted to announce that Neil Davy KC and Emma Sutton KC were appointed to silk on Monday, the 27th of March 2023, in Westminster Palace. Neil and Emma were accompanied at the ceremony by clerks Lee Johnson and Tom O’Connor.

Neil specialises in healthcare related work, particularly medical negligence claims. He has particular expertise in legally or technically complex and unusual cases requiring exceptionally detailed analysis or lateral thinking. He is described by Chambers & Partners as “a rising star”, a “impressively tough negotiator” and a “powerful advocate”.

Emma specialises in public law in the areas of mental capacity, mental health, health and social care and education, in cases which routinely involve significant human rights issues. She is noted by the directories as being “tenacious, detailed, thorough, confident, an exceptional advocate”.

Congratulations to Neil and Emma and many thanks to all those who participated in the application process as referees. Since 2016 our silk team has increased from 9 to 26 (including 8 women) and we have recruited 28 new tenants, enabling us to extend and diversify the service we provide to our clients.
