We have been shortlisted – The Legal 500 UK Awards

7 December 2018

Garden Court North Chambers are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for the Legal 500 UK 2019 awards. This is a huge honour and we would like to thank our professional clients for their support.

The awards we have been shortlisted for are:
• Regional Bar: Set of the year;
• Regional Bar: Silk of the year – Pete Weatherby QC; and
• Regional Bar: Junior of the year – Kate Stone.

The Legal 500 UK carries out many months of thorough research and conducts 70,000 interviews with in-house counsel, law firms and barristers’ chambers in the UK to pin-point the most capable, expert practitioners and firms operating at the top of their game across a number of different business sectors. The awards are unique in the legal industry as they recognise each element of the profession equally, representing the very best law firms, chambers, silks, in-house lawyers, business leaders and general counsel operating within the UK market.

Our nomination for these awards not only recognises the excellent work of all the members of Chambers, but also confirms our position as one of the leading chambers in the North West for criminal defence, civil liberties and human rights work.

The winners will be announced on the Legal 500 website on 3rd January 2019, so watch this space!
