Two New Barristers for SJB

October 12, 2015

St John’s Buildings has again boosted its numbers of exceptional and experienced barristers with the addition of two new members.

Rachael Rowley-Fox is an experienced Family: Children Law practitioner who joins us from London, where she practised for 15 years. Rachael is experienced in cases with complex evidence and international elements. She has also developed a thriving direct access practice.

Zahra Baqri is a criminal practitioner whose experience and specialism encompass all aspects of serious crime and fraud. She has prosecuted (in the capacity of reviewing lawyer or advocate) in some of the region’s most serious cases.

Chris Ronan, CEO of St John’s Buildings, said “We are delighted to welcome both Rachael and Zahra who are valuable additions to St John’s Buildings and will further strengthen our reputation as one of the leading sets in the north and nationwide.”

Rachael and Zahra will both be clerked from our Manchester Chambers. Contact 0161 214 1500 or email
