We are very pleased to announce that Anya and Amy are featured in the Lawyer’s Hot 100 list for 2019. This list is compiled by The Lawyer and showcases “the most daring, innovative and creative lawyers from in-house, private practice and the Bar” in the UK over the past year. We are also proud to note that, out of only 16 barristers mentioned, two come from 11KBW.
Anya Proops QC is recognised for her work at the vanguard of the “newest legal frontier” of privacy rights. She acted for Morrisons in the first, and ground-breaking, data breach group action involving leaked payroll data of nearly 100,000 employees. She is also acting for Facebook in its challenge to the highest ever monetary penalty under the Data Protection Act, which was imposed on Facebook in connection with the Cambridge Analytica affair. With the world of information becoming more complex, and with privacy rights becoming the centre of the debate, Anya, as a member of market-leading 11KBW, is well placed to lead the way through this difficult and burgeoning area.

Amy Rogers is recognised “as one of the most sought-after juniors at the Bar for complex commercial litigation.” She is regularly instructed in her own right or with leading Counsel in large scale conspiracy and economic tort litigation, claims involving allegations of breaches of directors’ and fiduciary duties and duties of confidence, shareholder disputes, as well as the full range of commercial contractual disputes and commercial judicial review. Her recent work has included major sanctions litigation for Bank Mellat, the multi-million pound group litigation against the Government in the solar PV sector, and a £100m+ Commercial Court group bonus litigation arising from the US Government bailout of AIG in 2008.
