Leading barrister’s chambers Thirty Nine Essex Street picked up an array of accolades last night at the Chambers Bar Awards 2011. The set once again featured prominently in the list of winners picking up four awards, which included a clean sweep in the ‘Environment and Planning’ category, at the prestigious ceremony held in London.

Thirty Nine Essex Street was the only chambers to win ‘Set of the Year’ for two of its practice areas, ‘Professional Discipline’ and ‘Environmental and Planning’, with the Environment and Planning group reigning supreme in their category, not only picking up ‘Set of the Year’, for the third time, but also ‘Silk of the Year’ for Stephen Tromans QC and ‘Junior of the Year’ for Richard Harwood.

The set, and its members, were also shortlisted in a number of other categories, with Greg Treverton-Jones QC up for ‘Professional Discipline Silk of the Year’, Christian Du Cann for ‘Personal Injury / Clinical Negligence Junior of the Year’ and also for the overall ‘Set of the Year’ award.

The Chambers Bar Awards have become a major fixture in the UK legal calendar, rewarding exceptional achievement over the past year for chambers, silks and juniors alike.

David Barnes, Chief Executive and Director of Clerking at Thirty Nine Essex Street Chambers, said of the win “We are absolutely delighted with the success at the awards. It is fantastic to see our practices and individual barristers being recognised by the industry for their expertise and the excellent work that they do.”

Barrister Richard Harwood, Head of the Environmental and Planning Group at Thirty Nine Essex Street Chambers commented “Winning all of the Environment/Planning awards reflects a phenomenal year that has seen our barristers doing cases from the nuclear industry through BBC2’s Windfarm Wars, Wightlink’s ferries, SAVE Britain’s Heritage’s demolition case and the Dale Farm traveller evictions.”

The wins further highlight the dynamic growth of Thirty Nine Essex Street who offers expertise across commercial, common, construction, costs, energy, environmental and planning, public, regulatory and disciplinary law.
