Calum H S MacNeill QC

New Westwater Advocates Stable Director


Westwater Advocates has chosen a new Stable Director, Calum MacNeill QC.

On his appointment, Calum gave the following statement:  It is an honour to take on the responsibility of heading the management of the stable of which I have been a member for many years.  Nick Ellis QC has done a formidable job steering the stable through devolution in 2007 and providing the leadership it has required ever since.  As I take over the role, we have a first class set of advocates and the best clerking team any set could wish for. Challenges surround us, not least in changing business structures and impending court reforms, but with our members’ skills and their numerous areas of expertise, we will adapt to changing times and continue to provide the first-rate, independent legal advice and representation for which we have become renowned.

Clerk Sheila Westwater interrupted her holiday to say “I have no doubt that Calum will be an excellent stable director. He is ideally qualified to lead the Stable through the exciting times ahead.”
