Garden Court Chambers immigration team retains top ranking in Legal 500

Last week saw the release of this year’s Legal 500 lawyer rankings. For those fortunate enough to receive a ranking it is an eagerly awaited event, as the excellent Legal Cheek coverage demonstrates: Humblebrags galore as latest Legal 500 listings revealed.

Garden Court Chambers as a whole did very well indeed this year, receiving the highest number of individual rankings in the country. The immigration team retained our top ranking in the field, the only London set to be ranked as Tier 1:

Claimant-only set Garden Court Chambers has ‘a very strong team, which is at the cutting edge of developments in the field’. Stephanie Harrison QC represented the claimants in R (JM and Ors) v SSHD, which led to the suspension of the ‘detained fast-track’ system. Lisa O’Leary, who leads the immigration practice management team, is ‘always willing to go the extra mile’.

If this sort of thing does it for you, you can see the full list of ranked Garden Court immigration barristers here, including small mugshots and flattering quotes about us.

In related news, the other principal legal directory, Chambers and Partners, has shortlisted Garden Court Chambers for their Human Rights and Public Law Set of the Year award.
