It has been announced today that, on the recommendation of The Lord Chancellor, Her Majesty The Queen has appointed Gurdeep Garcha to be Queen’s Counsel.
Sir Alex Allan, Chair of the Selection Panel, said: ’I am delighted at the announcement of the new silks. I congratulate each one of them…Each year, the Panel has the difficult task of identifying the truly excellent advocates. I am confident that those appointed today truly deserve to be Queen’s Counsel.’
Gurdeep will formally be sworn in as silk at an appointment ceremony before the Lord Chancellor on 16th March 2020 at the Palace of Westminster.
Gurdeep was called to the bar in 1997 and has established a reputation as one of the most in-demand criminal juniors on the Midland Circuit and beyond. He frequently appears in the most high-profile cases, specialising in the defence of homicide, organised crime, drugs and serious sexual offences.
