From today, seasoned regulatory and public law barrister Matthew Paul joins Civitas Law.
Matthew, who was brought up and lives in West Wales, was educated at New College, Oxford and has been practising in chambers in London since completing pupillage in 2001.
Matthew has considerable expertise in public law, licensing and regulatory matters whether before the civil or criminal courts or tribunals. His practice takes him all over the UK covering cases both at first instance and on appeal. He is a determined and well-prepared advocate who enjoys detailed argument whether on paper or in court.
Matthew's profile is available here.
Matthew said: "I am delighted to have been taken on as a tenant at Civitas Law, which is the premier set in Wales for regulatory and public law. I look forward to working with their excellent clerking team to support my client base and develop my practice throughout Wales and further afield."
Nick David Jones, head of the Management Board of Civitas Law, said:
"Matthew is undoubtedly a quality performer who has considerable expertise in our public law and regulatory fields both across the UK and here in Wales. We are delighted that he has approached us since his track record complements our stable of experienced barristers. He will be able to maintain his UK practice whilst having the local knowledge for matters particular to Wales. This news sits well with our nomination last week as a finalist for 2014 Regional Set of the Year.
Civitas Law remains happy to receive approaches from other exceptional barristers in our areas of practice.
