Chair of R3 in Yorkshire appointed as King’s Counsel

Eleanor Temple, chair of the UK’s insolvency and restructuring trade body R3 in Yorkshire, and a barrister at Kings Chambers in Leeds, is set to be appointed as King’s Counsel by His Majesty The King, based on the recommendation of The Lord Chancellor. Eleanor will officially take her oath at a ceremony on 18 March at the Palace of Westminster.

Eleanor has been regional chair of R3 in Yorkshire since 2017 and is one of the UK’s leading insolvency barristers. Her practice primarily centres on commercial litigation for both domestic and international clients, covering areas such as insolvency, company law, partnership actions, banking and finance, guarantees, civil fraud, contract disputes, breach of trust and fiduciary duties, asset tracing claims and directors’ disqualification.

Eleanor also serves as the North Eastern Representative of the newly formed NBPBA (Northern Business and Property Bar Association), the Co-Chair of the Yorkshire Pro Bono Committee, and regularly sits as a Recorder and BPC Deputy District Judge on the North Eastern Circuit.

Andrew Singer KC, head of King’s Chambers, said: “Eleanor thoroughly deserves her appointment as KC which rightly marks her expertise and excellence.”

Eleanor is an Insolvency Service Equality and Diversity Champion and has long been an advocate of diversity and inclusion in the professions and the judiciary. As a former student of Guiseley School in Leeds, she hopes to use her appointment as a KC to encourage others to believe the higher echelons of the professions are open to all.
