12KBW is delighted to announce that Charlotte Reynolds and Anna Symington have been elected as Joint Deputy Heads of Chambers.

William said: “When our dear friend and beloved Deputy Head of Chambers Richard Viney was tragically taken from us in August, a little over a month after I had taken over as Head of Chambers, Charlotte and Anna stepped up without hesitation, offering to act as joint Deputies at a time of great need, and great grief. They have been quite brilliant ever since: twin pillars of strength and wise counsel that have helped me to do a better job than I could ever have done alone. I am enormously grateful to them both.”

Charlotte and Anna said: “The last few months have been a difficult time for all of us, dealing with the personal loss of a dear friend and the professional loss of an extraordinary Deputy Head of Chambers. We hope to follow his example and will continue to support William to the best of our ability. We are now looking forward to the start of a new year and a new challenge for us both.”
