Andrew Walker KC presents red bag to James Mitchell

Andrew Walker KC has presented James Mitchell with a red bag in appreciation of his work in the case of South Tees Development Corporation & Anor v PD Teesport Ltd [2023] EWHC 2787 (Ch), [2024] EWHC 214 (Ch), [2024] EWHC 842 (Ch).

A Silk traditionally presents a junior barrister with a red bag to recognise outstanding work done by the junior when led in a case of substance.

Andrew Walker KC said, "Every case of substance requires a huge team effort, but James's work on this case - both in his own right and as part of the team - was exceptional and beyond his level of call. A red bag is well deserved."
