Chambers of the Year 2020

St John’s Buildings are delighted to have been named Chambers of the Year at the Manchester Legal Awards 2020.

Around 600 members of the profession attended an awards dinner at the Midland Hotel to celebrate the cream of the region’s legal talent.

“Barristers’ Chambers of the Year” was a keenly contested award. The judging criteria looked at areas such as wellbeing, equality and diversity and maintaining a sense of collective pride and contribution within chambers, in addition to highlights of the year and involvement in key cases.

St John’s Buildings gained the accolade of Chambers of the Year in 2015 and has been shortlisted on every occasion since the awards began, with the event now in its eleventh year.

CEO Chris Ronan said “We are honoured to have been chosen as the winner, especially as this year’s shortlist was so competitive. The awards are fantastic news not only for the winners but for everyone associated with our Chambers. It is public acknowledgement of the talents, hard work and dedication of all our barristers and staff.”

A full list of the winners and photographs from the evening can be found on the Manchester Evening News Business Live website. Congratulations to all the winners.
