Gillian Frost


Gillian was called to the Bar in 1979 and started practising in 1981. For many years she was in Chambers, most recently at 5 King’s Bench Walk.   Whilst in Chambers she was instructed in a variety of cases which have included fraud (including a 7- month VAT fraud as leading counsel for one of the Defendants), all types of dishonesty including Blackmail, robbery and deception; offences of violence, sexual offences and drugs offences.  She was previously instructed by John Williams and Bill Wilson when she was in Chambers. 
In 2009 she joined Ronald Fletcher Baker LLP as one of three in-house Barrister advocates.  She remained there for 5 years.  The work undertaken was defence criminal work of all kinds including murder, fraud, and rape.  She also undertook, as leading counsel, a Health and Safety trial involving injuries when a fairground ride failed. 
In 2014, Gillian decided to return to the Bar and to work independently of a Chambers.  She accepts criminal cases on a freelance basis from Solicitors.  She appears primarily in the Crown Court and occasionally at the Court of Appeal.
In 2017 Gillian decided to branch out into the field of professional regulatory defence work and now assists John Williams in preparatory work for his cases and undertake some of the advocacy that is required.
