Caspar Glyn QC, Tom Brown and Sarah Fraser-Butlin have all been appointed to sit in the Crown Court with effect from 4 April 2018. Caspar and Sarah will sit on the South Eastern circuit, Tom will sit on the Western Circuit.

The Queen has appointed 133 Recorders on the advice of the Lord Chancellor, the Right Honourable David Gauke MP, and the Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales, The Right Honourable The Lord Burnett of Maldon. Cloisters is thrilled to have three of their barristers appointed. It is anticipated that more appointments will be announced in the coming months.

Joint head of Cloisters, Robin Allen QC has said “Cloisters is immensely proud of Caspar, Tom and Sarah on their appointment as Recorders and congratulates them. This selection process has been more competitive than ever, with over 2,500 applicants; so the number of appointments reflects the depth of legal quality and expertise that Cloisters’ clients know we offer. All the new Recorders will remain in full time practice at the Bar.”
