The Legal 500 Bar Awards 2023

The Legal 500 Bar Awards seek to recognise sets as wholes as well as individuals: barristers at all levels of seniority, clerks, other chambers’ professionals, and arbitrators. Tying in with The Legal 500 Future Lawyers, a set will be recognised for its pupils. There will also be an additional award for the set or stable outside London. These awards are determined on The Legal 500’s market-leading independent research, conducted by over 20 in-house and freelance researchers with in-depth knowledge of their practice areas for the annual directory. Winners are selected by a judging team spearheaded by Bar editor Will Tolcher, deputy Bar editor Charlotte Meredith, and publishing director David Burgess.


I wanted to write and express my complete joy at receiving the award. Being shortlisted was more than flattering, but to win it has caused unforeseen happiness!

A fun, slick evening: excellent. Definitely different and brilliantly done.

Last night was a huge success on a personal level for me, but you guys pulled it out of the bag with the organising.

Thank you for a wonderful evening, and for giving us three awards!
Everyone was very positive about the night and a lot of hard work clearly went into it so well done to you and the team – you pulled off an excellent event.
