HM The Queen has appointed Barlow Lyde & Gilbert LLP (BLG) reinsurance partner Janet Lambert to be a District Judge.
She has been assigned to the South Eastern Circuit, based at the Royal Courts of Justice, with effect from Wednesday 6 April 2011.
Simon Konsta – Senior Partner at BLG – said: “This is a great appointment for Janet and we wish her the best of luck in this exciting new phase of her career. She has been a close and invaluable colleague for many years and has contributed hugely to the development of the firm during her time here, so we are obviously sad to see her go.”
Janet Lambert – who joined BLG in 1991 – said: “This wasn’t an easy decision for me as I have had 20 memorable years at BLG, and will be leaving during an exciting time for the firm as it continues to grow.
“Over the years I have been privileged to work with a group of lawyers who are leaders in their fields. However, I have been presented with a great opportunity to do something different, and hopefully bring my experience to bear in a new setting.”
