International Award for Jeremy Barnett

Legal Award Winner

 

 

Jeremy Barnett has been awarded the UK Health and Safety Barrister of the Year by the business and venture capital magazine, Acquisition International in their 2011 Legal Awards.

Jeremy is head of Regulatory at St Pauls Chambers, and is leading the move into 'Direct Access' work following recent changes in the Bar Council rules.

Jeremy was one of the founder members of St Pauls Chambers that was established in 1981.  St Pauls began as a criminal set, moving into Fraud, Regulatory work and now thriving Family, Personal Injury and Employment teams.  Jeremy has built a national practice in Health and Safety, toy and product safety and professional disciplinary work, regularly reprresenting Solicitors, Medical practitioners and is a board member of the 'super regulator', the Accountants and Actuarial Discipline Board [AADB] that is investigating a number of high profile cases and has recently imposed substantial penalties and costs on a major accountancy practice.

Speaking of the announcement, Jeremy said "I was delighted to receive this award.  It is recognition that a provincial set of chambers can compete on a national basis with 'magic circle firms' in London, and through direct access, can offer quality advice to businesses for exceptional value'.  St Pauls Chambers works closely with a numer of successful firms of solicitors and has found that the move into direct access has generated work, not only fo rthe members of chambers, but also their existing client base of instructing solicitors.
