Two Caian lawyers appointed QC
- 12 January 2016
Two Caians are among 107 new Queen’s Counsel announced today.
Taking silk are Jonathan Hilliard, of Wilberforce Chambers, and Tom Moody-Stuart of 8 New Square.
Jonathan Hilliard, recently described as “a rising star” by The Legal 500, came to Caius from Sidney Sussex to do a post-graduate law degree (LLM) here with support from the WM Tapp Trust – a Caius grant scheme. He took the top First in the LLM (with distinction) and was awarded the Chancellor's Medal - a rare achievement. Taking silk at an unusually young age, he has a broad trusts and commercial practice, focusing mainly on private, pension and other commercial trust disputes and fraud disputes.
Jonathan has also co-written a well-regarded contract law textbook with Dr Janet O'Sullivan of Cambridge Law Faculty.
Tom Moody-Stuart specialises in Intellectual property, copyright, designs, patents, trade marks, passing off trade secrets, media and entertainment, information technology, data protection and advertising standards.
He gained a double first class degree in Natural Sciences at Caius, specialising in microbiology, genetics and the history and philosophy of science.
A member of Middle Temple, Tom was awarded a Queen Mother Fund Scholarship in 1994 and was called to the bar in 1995.
He is a trustee of The Reading Agency, a reading and literacy charity.
