AGS's In-house Counsel team

While a large number of AGS Dispute Resolution lawyers routinely appear as solicitor–advocates, we also have specialist advocates who are regularly briefed to appear as counsel by both AGS and private firms.

Chief Counsel Dispute Resolution Tom Howe PSM QC is our most senior and experienced counsel. But AGS Dispute Resolution is expanding its pool of practitioners who practice principally as counsel and we have recently added [above] Irene Sekler, Peter Melican and Sarah Wright to the in-house counsel team which includes Tom and Senior General Counsel Tim Begbie, Andrew Berger, Peter Macliver and Damien O'Donovan.

'It is hoped that over time, the practices of the new counsel will be comprised principally of briefs from both AGS lawyers, clients and private firms,' said the National Leader of AGS Dispute Resolution, Matthew Blunn.
