107 barristers and solicitor-advocates have been honoured this year.

Of those appearing more than five times, Richard Wilson (3 Stones Buildings) has been successful for his clients in all his appearances and Cathryn McGahey (Temple Garden Chambers) has won almost three quarters of her cases. Our congratulations go to them and all the newly-appointed silks.
