The Queen has today approved the appointment of 8 Lord Justices of Appeal, one of whom is Mr Justice Edis.
Andrew Edis QC was the cornerstone of a lot of the work we did on credit hire at AX (especially as a result of the Autofocus fraud). He was appointed a High Court Judge in 2014 and has been a presiding Judge for the South Eastern Circuit since 2018.
I wrote to congratulate him when he was appointed to the High Court. He sent an email back, which I still have, and in which he replied:
"You are my favourite client. I only really have one other, the Queen, and she struggles to compete. The great thing was that I always felt we were fighting together as a team, which is a great stress buster. Her Majesty never turned up once."
