Cherie Blair leaves human rights’ barristers’ practice
Cherie Blair, wife of former UK premier Tony Blair, has stepped down from the human rights
barristers’ practice she co-founded to focus on her consultancy – advising governments,
multinationals and private clients.
Ms Blair, a judge and a leading silk, co-founded the specialist chamber Matrix in 2000 along
with more than 20 other barristers to concentrate on human rights and public law as well as
criminal, commercial and EU law areas.
