Andrew Marsden Retires

15 April 2024

After 49 years at the bar, Andrew Marsden has retired from the bar and East Anglian Chambers. All members and staff want to express to him their thanks and wish him a long, happy and healthy retirement.

Andrew joined East Anglian Chambers as a pupil in 1975 after being called to the bar that same year. Since that time, he has gone on to become a stalwart of the courts in East Anglia and London both as a member of the bar and as a Recorder sitting in the County Court and Crown Court. Whilst in recent times he has specialised in complex matrimonial finance, property and chancery work, he started like many with a common-law practice at East Anglian Chambers in crime and general civil work. We understand that Andrew intends to continue sitting for the time being in his retirement as a Recorder.

We are especially appreciative of the time and dedication Andrew has given to Chambers over many years in various guises. This includes a stint as Head of Chambers, pupil supervisor to many past and present members of Chambers as well as general mentor and involvement in the management of Chambers and its activities.

We will all miss Andrew’s good humour and company at Court and in Chambers but look forward to celebrating his time with us at our Chambers’ summer party at Le Talbooth later this year where he and his wife, Penny, will be our esteemed guests.
