Kimberley Obrusik

Call To The Bar: 2010

Kim is a popular and experienced leading junior.  She specialises in high-profile cases and is regularly instructed to prosecute and defend in cases involving serious organised crime groups. She accepts instructions in regulatory cases, business crime, professional discipline and inquests and is regularly instructed in evidentially dense, multiple defendant cases, including cases involving fatalities and cases of homicide. Kim was called to the Bar in 2010 and practiced from chambers in Preston before joining Lincoln House Chambers in 2022.

Kim’s practice focuses on serious crime. She has an abundance of experience across the whole ambit of criminal law and is willing to accept instructions, both as trial advocate and junior counsel, in cases involving extreme violence (including Murder & Manslaughter), large scale drug conspiracies, serious sexual offences, fraud and dishonesty. Kim has been involved in some of the Northern Circuit’s most significant multi handed drug conspiracy matters in recent years.

Kim is well known for her excellent client relationships and client care as at the heart of her work. Through very thorough early case preparation, Kim quickly inspires the loyalty of both her lay-client and those instructing her. Kim is also well known as being a very powerful and persuasive advocate.

Upon completing her undergraduate degree Kim spent time in New Orleans where she undertook an internship with the Capital Post Conviction Project of Louisiana. During this time she was responsible for the investigation and preparation of court documentation for two of the office’s most notorious cases (A. Frank and M. Weary).

Kim has “a warm and charismatic personality that draws clients in and gains their trust immediately, going on to impress them with the mastery of her brief and incisive strategy”- Carrie Gilgun (Forbes)
