This article reports that Brick Court Chambers head Christopher Clarke QC will go to the bench upon completion of his role as counsel to the Saville Inquiry. Jonathan Hirst QC and Jonathan Sumption QC replace Clarke, who has led the magic circle set since 1999. As the top earner on the Bloody Sunday Inquiry, Clarke amassed earnings of 3.7m pound by February 2004 for six years full-time work much less than the former doyen of the commercial bar could have made from sticking to heavy weight City cases.
