New advocates for a revitalised stable

Themis Advocates welcome two new counsel following today's Faculty and Court admission ceremonies in Parliament House


Chris Miller having gained academic distinction at Strathclyde University brings a knowledge of internet law and policy to a desire to practice in both criminal and civil law. Experience appearing in court and various tribunals before his admission to the Faculty place Chris in an excellent position to advance his interests in media and intellectual property law within a broader commercial and reparation practice

 

Robert Hovey joins with experience in personal injury and clinical negligence litigation. As a Mike Jones Excellence in Advocacy Prize winner, he is already a confident court practitioner. Prior to his admission, during his time with one of Scotland's leading litigation firms, Robert built up experience in a wide range of reparation litigation including industrial inquiry and personal injury actions, clinical negligence and foreign travel claims.

 

Welcoming the new members, Stable Director Andrew Webster QC said 'Themis Advocates, refreshed and revitalised, are determined to maintain excellent advocacy services across a broad range of practice areas. Chris and Robert bring not only enthusiasm to their well earned membership of Faculty, they enrich the spread of service provision offered by Themis. As the practical consequences of the current pandemic begin to crystallise for all of us, Chris's interest in internet law and cybercrime and Robert's experience of foreighn travel litigation should prove a relevant and timely base upon which to build successful practices, for which they are clearly well suited. But for today we offer our congratulations and wish them well as members of Faculty and as members of Themis Advocates'
