The Legal 500 UK 2015 Guide was published online today.  The Guide noted that

“1MCB … is a respected common law set, with niche specialisms in areas such as animal welfare and prison law. It is recommended for its ‘flexibility’ and ‘multi-talented barristers’. The clerks are also singled out as ‘very helpful and professional’. Mark Darvell is the senior civil clerk, and Adam Brosnan is the senior criminal clerk.”

Benjamin Hawkin was ranked as a leading junior in immigration law for his “specialist knowledge of a range of areas including asylum, deportation and entry clearance”.

David Stephenson was ranked as a leading junior in employment law: “A formidable opponent, a polished and persuasive advocate, and a tough negotiator who goes the extra mile for his clients”.
