No5 Barristers' Chambers earns top rankings in Chambers UK Bar Guide 2019

Thu, 01 Nov 2018

No5 Barristers’ Chambers is delighted that its members and practice areas continue to receive Band 1 ranking in the 2019 edition of the Chambers UK Bar Guide.

This year’s guide sees 100 ranked barristers within the set, 12 Band 1 Silks and 23 Band 1 Juniors. Christopher Young QC gains “New Silk”, while Martin Kingston QC is recognised as a “Star Individual” and juniors Caroline Jennings, Jessica Smeaton and Hashi Mohamed are all recognised as “Up and Coming”.

In total 12 practice areas received Band 1 rankings on the Midlands circuit; they are Chancery, Clinical Negligence, Commercial Dispute Resolution, Company, Crime, Employment, Family/Matrimonial, Health and Safety, Immigration, Personal Injury, Planning and Real Estate Litigation. There is also a Band 3 ranking for Court of Protection: Health and Welfare on the Western circuit.

Chief Executive and Director of Clerking at No5 Barristers’ Chambers, Tony McDaid said:

“Securing these rankings recognises the hard work, dedication and professionalism of everyone at No5 Barristers’ Chambers. The number of areas handed a Band 1 ranking demonstrates a comprehensive breadth of expertise across all services and recognises the top-quality advocacy offered to all our clients. It is particularly pleasing that affirmations have been made to five individuals including QCs and Juniors within the set.”

The rankings are secured on the back of No5 Barristers’ Chambers again being named as one of just two top-tier ranked sets on the Midland circuit in the annual Legal 500 listings.

No5 Barristers’ Chambers has over 250 barristers and 32 silks. Its reach also extends beyond the UK into the international arena - most notably in recent years in Dubai and the Cayman Islands.
