Westgate was started in October 1987 by John Collins and Westgate’s First Clerk, Raymond Fox Byrne. Up till then, the only Chambers in the South East were Annexes of London Chambers. It was felt that the time had come for Barristers who were living in the Southeast to be based there full time. As Lewes was the Premier Legal Centre in the Southeast for over 400 years, it was the natural base. Members were received by the Lord Chief Justice, Lord Lane, at his lodgings in Lewes on 21st. June, 1988 in acknowledgment of their First Anniversary. Chambers Tenth Anniversary Dinner was in the presence of the Chief Justice of Ireland, The Hon. Liam Hamilton and the Leader of the House of Lords, Lord Ivor Richards. The 15th, 20th and 25th Anniversary Dinners were presided over by Lady Justice Anne Rafferty, Lady Justice of Appeal and her husband Brian John Barker, the Recorder of London at the Old Bailey.
