Practice Areas

John Beggs QC was called to the Bar in 1989 and took silk in 2009. John specialises in public and administrative, police, employment, inquests and inquiries and professional discipline law. An earlier edition notes that "he is probably the best cross-examiner outside the Criminal Bar" and that he is "extremely quick in his thinking, to the point and knows his stuff. If you want someone to win your case, he's the man." He was ranked as one of the 100 top silks by The Chambers Bar 100 2014.
