Called 2005

Roy Ledgister OBE


Roy practised as a solicitor and then a solicitor advocate for a number of years before being called to the Bar in 2005.

Roy began his career at O'Keeffe Solicitors in 1995 before setting up 'Ledgisters Solicitors' in Shepherds Bush as the youngest senior partner in the UK in 1998. He earned a place in the 'Professional Who's Who' for his achievements and went onto establish a further practice specialising in criminal defence in Manchester.

Roy developed his criminal practice as a solicitor acting on behalf of clients in a range of criminal matters. His background and training are invaluable when practising as an advocate. He attained higher rights in 2001 and is regularly instructed as sole advocate, junior advocate and more recently leading advocate.
