11KBW excels in the Legal 500 2022 directory


We were delighted with our rankings in the Legal 500 this year.

We are ranked as a set in the top tiers for Employment, Public Procurement, and Local Government, and once again stand alone in the top tier for Education and Data Protection law. 

Over a dozen of our barristers have been ranked for the first time, or promoted, in all of our key practice areas including Admin & Public Law, Civil Liberties and Human Rights, Employment, Education, Professional Discipline & Regulatory Law and Public Procurement. For the first time this year our barristers have also been ranked in Travel Law, Financial Services Regulation and Pensions.

We continue to be recognised as a leading set in our other specialist practice areas including Public Law (‘second-to-none in public law’), Civil Liberties and Human Rights (‘able to take on any human rights issue and do it with panache’),  and Defamation and Privacy (‘Now one of the go-to sets for defamation and privacy cases’).

The clerking team also received particularly high praise for understanding and meeting our clients’ needs and for their commercial awareness (‘Excellent clerking team, among the best’. ‘A class act, like the barristers’.)

Our rankings are in large part due to the strong relationships we enjoy with our clients and we thank them for their continued support.
