Manuel Barca QC wins Defamation Silk of the Year 2017 at the Chambers and Partners Bar Awards

One Brick Court are delighted to announce that Manuel Barca QC was awarded Defamation Silk of the Year at this evening’s Chambers and Partners Bar Awards, held at The London Hilton, Park Lane.

Chambers and Partners Bar Awards, are the leading awards recognising outstanding barristers and sets in the UK and are the result of extensive and detailed research over the last 12 months.

Manuel is now widely recognised as a pre-eminent and dominant silk in this area and is highly sought after for both claimant and defendant work, for both traditional media and non-media law cases. Manuel is the consummate all-rounder, popular with clients and judges alike for his clear, contemporary and straightforward approach in these complex areas of law.

Manuel’s record of achievement and appearances since mid-2015 speaks for itself, with two major libel trials (one for the Claimant, one for the Defendant), appearing in the Court of Appeal in seminal cases relating to both the law of defamation and privacy (again representing both Claimant and Defendant) and also in the Supreme Court on a landmark privacy injunction case. His work in court alone demonstrates why he is a worthy winner of Silk of the Year.
