St John’s Building Welcomes Specialist In Children And Family Law

St John’s Buildings has welcomed barrister Andrew Mountain into its family law team.

Specialising as a solicitor in family law for 35 years, Andrew Mountain transferred to the Bar in 2019 and has joined St John’s Buildings to continue his career.

Recognised as one of the top family and children law lawyers in the country, he acted for both individuals and Local Authorities and was an accredited member of the Law Society Children Panel. Working on both complex and high-profile cases, including representing children in the Rochdale sexual abuse scandal and the gang-related murder of police officers and family members in Greater Manchester.

Prior to transferring to the Bar, Andrew spent 14 years as an equity partner in Stephensons Solicitors LLP, one of the largest family law departments in the country.

Commenting on Andrew’s appointment, Chris Ronan, chief executive at St John’s Buildings, said:

“Andrew has a vast amount of experience in Children Law and we are delighted that he has chosen to join Chambers. We ended 2019 by being named both Chambers of the Year and Clerking Team of the Year at the Family Law Awards. It’s great to begin 2020 with the announcement of a new member who will further strengthen our impressive reputation.

“When I made the decision to transfer to the Bar, I knew that St John’s Buildings was the Chambers I wanted to join. Their reputation within family and child law is second to none, and the breadth of knowledge in the team means every case can benefit from a true expert in that area of law.

“I look forward to working with the excellent team already in place and supporting St John’s Buildings in maintaining its reputation as the best Chambers for family law.

We wish Andrew all the success in his new position.
