King’s Counsel appointment

We are delighted to announce that Matthew Smith will be appointed to the rank of King’s Counsel in a ceremony in the spring before the Lord Chancellor. This will bring the number of King’s Counsel at Maitland to 21, working alongside 48 junior barristers.

Matthew’s practice embraces all aspects of commercial chancery litigation: from company and insolvency questions to contractual and property-related disputes. He has particular expertise in insolvency and in charity matters. He has been recommended for many years in the Chambers UK Bar Guide for Charities as a 'Star Individual'.

All of us at Maitland warmly congratulate Matthew.
