Ayse Akgol Becomes Our Newest Tenant.
Central Chambers is delighted to announce that following a successful pupillage under Joseph Lynch Ayse has been offered and has accepted Tenancy at Central Chambers.
As we progressed from the obstacles 2020 and 2021 threw up Ayse has been able to complete a varied and full pupillage with Central Chambers. She will be joining our Family team and is already in demand in both Public and Private Family Law. She is also available to act in injunctive family matters.
Supervisor Joe Lynch says:
‘From a supervisor’s point of view Ayse has been a delight to work with over the last twelve months. She started with an enthusiasm that has not waned and she seems genuinely excited and happy to be doing the work she is. She has been very open to advice and guidance whether that was from me, or other members of chambers/the bar. I have seen clear examples of where she has put advice received into action whether that is in approach to a case or around preparation.
I have no doubt that Ayse is an asset to chambers and will continue to be so for many years, she is committed to Central and has made it clear to me how much she appreciates the help and friendships she has developed over the last twelve months with various members of chambers.
Whilst Central Chambers takes Pupils with a view to tenancy, all pupils must pass a vote of existing tenants in order to be offered tenancy. This process involves detailed consideration of the applicant’s previous 12 months’ work.
A vote to offer tenancy must be taken as a strong endorsement of the applicant and shows that the tenants consider that the applicant has grown into their space in Chambers and will be an asset to this growing set.
In her second six Ayse has gained the trust of the clerks’ room with Jade and Helen commenting:
‘Ayse has laid some promising foundations for her career at the bar.
Helen and I have had no problems getting work for Ayse and when offered amongst others she has repeatedly been top choice. I have had nothing but good feedback. She is very competent and is very organised leading to repeat instructions. She keeps the solicitors updated and retains her matters. Due to her abilities, she has also been instructed on multi day cases of up to 4 days long, on more than one occasion.
Ayse is very conscientious and thorough, her billing is always up to date, the information is correct, and it makes billing easy.
We have always found Ayse to be very independent. She is happy to pick up any type of work, even when it is last minute.
Ayse is the latest pupil to complete a pupillage at Central Chambers. The programme at Central at the forefront of the pupillage reforms by the Bar Standards Board and is proud to be. So far, pupil supervisors have found the programme to be more beneficial to the pupils as well as more flexible and common sense.
When Central Chambers restructured about six years ago, the decision to start accepting pupils again was bold. Since then, a combination of eagle-eyed recruitment and joined-up training has resulted in a growing pool of newly minted specialists in family and criminal law, in particular. This has allowed Central Chambers to grow at a time when other chambers are struggling but has also allowed our instructing solicitors to have an even wider range of talents available to them.
On a personal note her pupil supervisor says
‘Ayse has a sense of serenity that has made working with her over the last year a really enjoyable experience. She has a very sharp and dry sense of humour which helps as well. I have no doubt that we will be going to a lot more musicals in the coming years but I’m still saying no to The Rocky Horror Show’.
Ayse’s tenancy begins on 5th April 2022 and she is available for instruction immediately.
