Fenners’ founder member retires from the Bench

On the same day, His Honour Judge Michael Yelton, one of the founder members of Fenners Chambers alongside Jon Haworth and David Levin, retired as a Circuit Judge after 21½ years in office.

Appointed a full time circuit judge at the then early age of 48, he was the third most senior member of the English and Welsh circuit bench by the time of his retirement. Michael also sat as a Deputy High Court Judge from 2000.

Everyone at Fenners thanks Michael for the enormous contribution he made to the success of chambers in the first quarter-century of its existence and wishes him a long and happy retirement.
