Matthew Parfitt appointed to the A Panel

Matthew Parfitt has been appointed to the Attorney General’s A Panel of Counsel to the Crown from 1 September 2020.

In general, those appointed to the A panel will have over 10 years’ advocacy experience. The Attorney General seeks candidates of the highest quality and competition for places is fierce.

Matthew’s appointment follows his terms on the B Panel and the C Panel, during which Matthew has undertaken extensive advocacy and advisory work for the government. He looks forward to continuing this work in the most challenging and significant government cases.
