Cyrus Larizadeh QC inspired by our Head of Chambers, Ian Griffin

21st Jun 2019

Ian Griffin of 4 Brick Court has not just inspired me as an advocate and colleague over the many years but he has influenced the Family Bar and Judiciary into action through his seismic article ‘Wellbeing and the Big C.’ McFarlane P was so moved he asked Ian’s permission to circulate it to every family judge in the land. Partly due to Ian’s compelling article but also through his own assessment on the ground, the President adopted wellbeing as the corner stone of his reforms in his welcome address of October 2018. Ian has spoken at the number of important events including at Central Family Court and Cumberland Lodge before 3 Presidents members of the Court of Appeal and judges of the Family Division about wellbeing and family justice system. His courage and vision has moved people to address their own wellbeing and the welfare of those around them. Improving our Wellbeing will be Ian’s legacy.”
