Chambers are delighted to announce Kate Blackwell QC’s success in winning the Barrister of the Year award at The Manchester Legal Awards. This award comes after a fantastic year for Kate which included recognition in the leading legal publications. The Legal 500 ranked Kate in “Tier 1” and commented ‘Possibly the best crime silk on circuit; she has exceptional judgement and is an outstanding trial advocate.’ Chambers and Partners UK commented “She does high-profile work. She’s very hard-working and committed to her clients.”
Upon receiving the award, Kate commented “I am really pleased for myself, for Chambers and especially for women in our sector. I was delighted to see that the shortlist were all women and it is a step in the right direction. I think that women can give so much to the profession; they have a sense of empathy that really shines thorough, especially in sensitive cases”.
