Ian Macdonald QC was called to the bar in 1963 and took Silk in 1988. He was, for many years, head of Garden Court Chambers, London and he continues to head Garden Court North Chambers, Manchester...
Chambers and Partners rates law firms and their staff. Garden Court Chambers is rated the number one immigration law set in London and, in 2013, elevated Ian Macdonald to ‘Senior Statesman’ in recognition of his long-standing contribution to the field of immigration law…
Garden Court North is also a leading chambers according to Chambers and Partners…
In awarding Ian Macdonald the title ‘Senior Statesman’ I am sure that Chambers and Partners is completely unaware of Macdonald’s connection to Kings Court Chambers, Birmingham.
Ian Macdonald QC and barrister Tariq Rehman set up Kings Court Chambers in late 2011. From its inception, Kings Court Chambers had just one aim: To make money by an advance fee fraud, which you can read about here…
The question must be why Macdonald, a QC with a glittering career behind him, choose to team up with Rehman and why did he remain head of Kings Court Chambers for 18 months following a myriad of complaints and a BBC investigation? Did Macdonald choose to bury his head in the sand, or did he conspire with Rehman to defraud ten of thousands of victims?
Only Macdonald can answer those questions but, so far, he has remained mute on the subject, even refusing to deal with complaints from many disgruntled clients.
Macdonald was certainly aware of the problems at Kings Court Chambers by July 2012, when the following announcement was made on the website of Garden Court Chambers where he remains the longest serving barrister…
“Garden Court Chambers wishes to make it clear that it has no association with Kings Court Chambers, Birmingham, nor UK Visa and Immigration services operating the website http://www.ukvisaandimmigration.co.uk.”
It would be another 11 months after that announcement on Garden Court Chamber’s website that Macdonald would disassociate himself from Kings Court Chambers by resigning as joint of chambers and leaving the set altogether.
Despite his disassociation, Kings Court Chambers continues to list Macdonald on its website…
In all probability, Macdonald never even visited Kings Court Chambers, making him a ‘door tenant’ along with the rest of the motley crew of barristers who joined the set, apparently in search of easy money…
