Recorder Appointment for In-House Counsel
Leading law firm Cartwright King, with one of the largest criminal defence teams in the country, would like to congratulate in-house counsel, Julie Warburton, on her appointment to sit as a Recorder on the Midlands Circuit.
Believed to be the first female in-house counsel to have been appointed to this office, Julie joined Cartwright King in 2013 and forms part of its bespoke in-house Chambers. Having practiced criminal law for over 22 years, Julie’s career at the Criminal Bar has seen her deal in both prosecution and defence across the entire criminal spectrum.
Known for her analytical mind and ability to handle vulnerable clients and witnesses, Julie is an outstanding advocate who deals with the most serious of criminal offences which include murder, manslaughter, GBH, rape, drug trafficking, money laundering, blackmail, kidnapping, false imprisonment, witness intimidation and perverting the course of justice. Julie has been instructed both as junior counsel and as leading junior counsel in a number of high profile cases, many of which have involved extremely vulnerable adults, women and children.
Rupert Hawke, Cartwright King’s Managing Director says, “I am extremely pleased with Julie Warburton’s appointment as a Recorder. Not only is Julie a formidable criminal barrister, she also promotes the core values that underpin what we stand for. This is a great achievement for Julie and for our in-house chambers.”
