Brick Court Chambers (Chambers of Mark Howard QC and Helen Davies QC)

Position

Richard Gordon is widely recognised as one of the leading silks in Administrative and Public Law, Constitutional Law, EU Law and Human Rights/Civil Liberties. Increasingly, his work encompasses public law issues arising in competition, commercial regulatory and energy cases. He acts in international jurisdictions at the highest level as well as in the UK. He has also recently co-authored Sanctions Law (Hart Publishing 2019) an area of law that complements the different areas of his practice.

Much of his work is at appellate level and he makes frequent appearances in the Supreme Court. But he also acts at first instance in cases (whether involving public law or not) engaging important or complex points of law.
