We are delighted to announce that Clive Heaton QC is to be appointed to the Circuit Bench. From the 1st August he will sit as a Circuit Judge in Leeds, exclusively hearing family cases.
Clive joined Zenith Chambers in 1992, having previously practised as a solicitor for 10 years. He has made a significant contribution to the field of family law (particulalry children law) over the years and is described in the 2011 edition of Chambers & Partners as a "beacon of the profession".
He is a truly valued member of Zenith who has acted as a mentor and adviser to many in Chambers. We all look forward to helping him celebrate his achievement.
