‘Supporting strategic expansion’: Wilberforce takes barrister duo from 3 Stone Buildings

Wilberforce Chambers continues to expand, adding Fenner Moeran QC and Andrew Child from 3 Stone Buildings, just weeks after bringing three silks and five junior barristers from soon-to-dissolve London commercial and chancery set 11 Stone Buildings (11SB).

Recommended by The Legal 500 as a heavyweight pensions silk, Moeran’s work in recent years has been focused on civil fraud and dishonesty disputes, with particular emphasis on breaches of fiduciary duties.

In a statement today (29 October), Wilberforce said the move ‘strongly supports the strategic expansion of specialists in our key practice areas.’

Child is also recommended in The Legal 500 as a leading junior who is ‘easy to work with, and knowledgeable in the area of trusts and estates.’

Moeran will officially join chambers from 2 November, while Child will move sets from, 10 November.

In September Wilberforce announced that 11SB silks Lexa Hilliard QC, Alan Gourgey QC and Marcia Shekerdemian QC would join the set alongside five junior barristers after the former set voted to dissolve, a move which will take effect tomorrow.

Wilberforce head of chambers, John Martin QC, said: ‘We are always interested in practitioners who are leaders in their field of expertise and we are therefore delighted to welcome Fenner and Andrew who will join the specialist groups at Wilberforce.’
