In a joint message, Philip Edey KC and Charles Kimmins KC, co-Heads of Twenty Essex, commented:
“We are delighted officially to welcome Alex and Matt as new members of Twenty Essex. They have both been excellent pupils and, particularly given their prior experience, will no doubt hit the ground running as they embark on their careers at the Bar. We wish them every success.”
