3rd November 2022

Congratulations to Mark Harries KC and Tom O’Connor for winning Pro Bono KC of the Year and Pro Bono Chambers’ Professional of the Year respectively.

Advocate noted that:

  • “Mark’s practice stands out for the importance, impact and range of pro bono cases he undertakes… his enthusiasm in even the most challenging situation is inspiring”; and
  • “Tom’s approach plays a crucial part in driving a pro bono ethos in Chambers which supports and steers clients through what sadly is often the crisis of their lives… his commitment to helping vulnerable people shapes everything he does.”

It was also announced that Olivia Kirkbride is down to the final four, from an original shortlist of nine, for the Young Pro Bono Barrister of the Year Award, which is to be announced at the Annual Bar and Young Bar Conference at the end of the month. She was commended as “highly accomplished and remarkable in her professionalism, diligence and care”.

Serjeants’ Inn was also one of four finalists in the Set of the Year category as testament to what the judges described as an “impressive commitment” to pro bono work on the part of members of Chambers and the staff team.
