For the first time, Chambers & Partners has introduced The Chambers 100 UK Bar, which ranks the top barristers in the UK, according to its research. To be in the initial shortlist of 200 Silks and 200 Juniors, lawyers had to be ranked in Bands One or Two or as ‘Star Individuals’ in a key area of law within Chambers UK Bar 2014. From the shortlists, Chambers & Partners conducted further research to rank the final 100 Silks and 100 Juniors in two separate tables.
In total, seven members of Essex Court Chambers have been listed for The Chambers 100 UK Bar.
They are 3 Silks: David Foxton QC, Andrew Hochhauser QC, and Joe Smouha QC;
and 4 Juniors: David Craig, Ricky Diwan, Edmund King, and David Scorey
A further five members were on the initial shortlists: Roderick Cordara QC, Vernon Flynn QC , Toby Landau QC , Vaughan Lowe QC and Salim Moollan.
