NEW MANCHESTER MERCANTILE JUDGE
Presumably to replace the much vaunted Judge Waksman who has gone South to act as the London Mercantile Judge (replacing Judge Mackie) and hearing those London commercial cases which fall short in value and importance of the Commercial Court's purview, comes a former Partner of Linklaters no less (yes, a female solicitor - that'll be noticed by the locals around King/St John's Streets) - already she has been exercising her skills as a Dep High Ct Judge (and will no doubt remain a section 9 Judge in Manchester) and as a Recorder ( http://www.christianconcern.com/our-concerns/judge-rules-against-christian-bb-owner ). She is ex Cheltenham Ladies, and Clare College Cambridge, was an articled clerk at Linklaters in 1982, and became a partner in 1991, and then after a stint in house at Vodafone, again returned to the Linklaters' partnership in 2002. She is a capital market expert and now has to get to grips with the mercantile case load of the North West:
The Queen has appointed Jane Clare Moulder to be a Specialist Mercantile Circuit Judge on the advice of the Lord Chancellor, the Right Honourable Michael Gove MP and the Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales, the Right Honourable The Lord Thomas of Cwmgiedd.
The Lord Chief Justice has deployed her to the Northern Circuit, based at Manchester Civil Justice Centre with effect from 18 September 2015.
Notes to editors
Jane Clare Moulder, aged 55, will be known as Her Honour Judge Moulder. She was admitted as a solicitor in 1984. She was appointed as a Recorder in 2010.
