This year saw a total of 3,760 lawyers recognised; 476 of whom were barristers. Contributions from the Bar make up 12.6% of submissions, although only 9.3% of all barristers and solicitors. 

18 Garden Court barristers have been listed: Marc Willers KC, Irena Sabic KCJoanne Cecil KCGreg Ó Ceallaigh KC, Patrick Roche, David Jones, Roger Pezzani, Kate Aubrey-Johnson, Tim BaldwinMaha Sardar, James Holmes, Maria Moodie, Una Morris, Steven Galliver-Andrew, Nadia O'Mara, Oscar DaviesGeorgie Rea & Maaha Elahi.

In addition to those listed above, many of our other members frequently take on cases pro bono. We are proud of our longstanding commitment to access to justice, including through our Special Fund.

As a Chambers, we have donated almost £3 million to small legal, campaigning or charitable organisations undertaking work in defence of civil liberties or access to social justice.  Every member of chambers contributes financially to the Special Fund. Most of the organisations we support improve access to justice for disadvantaged, marginalised or vulnerable members of society.

Congratulations to all those recognised on the list. View the full list here.
