“A class act all round” – “the strength in depth is astonishing”
11KBW shines in the Legal 500 2016 directory
We were delighted with our performance in the Legal 500 this year.
We are ranked in the top tiers for Education and Employment (‘no other chambers in London has the same depth of ability at every level’), and once again stand alone in the top tier for Data Protection (‘knocks its competitors out of the park’).
15 of our barristers have been ranked for the first time, and 17 have been 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. Amy Rogers’ ranking for the first time in Commercial Litigation, and Sean Aughey’s promotion in International Arbitration reflect chambers’ growing reputation in the international commercial arena.
We continue to be recognised as a leading set in our other specialist practice areas including Public Law (‘the go-to set for any heavyweight piece of work’), Civil Liberties and Human Rights (‘a strong choice for a wide range of civil liberties work’), and Public Procurement (‘for many the top set for public and EU law’).
The clerking team also received particularly high praise for understanding and meeting our clients’ needs and for their commercial awareness (‘The whole operation is professional’ and ‘the exceptional clerks far outstrip those at other sets’).
Our rankings are in large part due to the strong relationships we enjoy with our clients and we thank them for their continued support.
