Rebecca WadeSt Ives Chambers ‘Rebecca is a tenacious and well-prepared barrister, whose advocacy skills are second to none. She clearly goes the extra mile for her clients and is fearless in front of a range of judges. She has a strong presence in the court room and is also an accomplished leading junior.’  

St Ives Chambers is a ‘pool of highly talented criminal practitioners’ often involved in complex and lengthy murder trials and large-scale drug, firearm, and fraud conspiracies. The criminal practice group is led by ‘the tremendously diligent and hard-working’ Rebecca Wade who has ‘good judgement and great eye for detail’. Justin Jarmola is known for his ‘exceptional written advocacy’ and secured acquittal for a teenager defendant in a multi-week attempted murder trial. William Douglas-Jones ‘demonstrates the gravitas and demeanour of a highly experienced barrister’ and was led junior for a defendant in this 9-handed conspiracy to murder trial in the Crown Court.
