Criminal Silk is Lawyer of the Week

31 Oct

Brian McConnachie, QC


THE leading defence counsel, Brian McConnachie, QC, has been chosen as Lawyer of the Week in the law section of The Times.

Mr McConnachie was featured after winning a reduction in the minimum term to be served by a teenage murderer, Aaron Campbell.

He said the main issue in the appeal was distancing himself professionally from the horror of the case “to allow me to represent this young accused to the best of my ability.”
