Gordon Nardell QC of 20 Essex Street Chambers has been appointed as Labour’s new in-house Counsel (IHC), to oversee the party’s disciplinary processes.
Labour sources told the SKWAWKBOX that an urgent task of the IHC will also be to define what qualifies as evidence in complaints – a key issue in ensuring that due process and the principles of justice are applied.
Mr Nardell’s professional profile at his chambers can be viewed here. The SKWAWKBOX welcomes him to his new role and looks forward to speedy improvements in the disciplinary process and outcomes.
Senior Labour sources describe the appointment as ‘a huge coup for the Labour Party’. Legal ranking experts Chambers & Partners describe him as “a superb legal resource“.
