The finalists for the Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year awards 2020 have been announced.
Citadel Chambers are delighted to announced that Richard Davenport has been nominated as one of three finalists for the Barrister of the Year prize.
Richard was nominated by a firm of defence solicitors after he secured his client’s acquittal for very serious sexual offences. Further, Richard helped an extremely vulnerable client who was suffering from serious mental health issues.
The awards ceremony, which is organised by The Legal Aid Practitioners Group 2020, will take place on 7 July 2020. Chris Minnoch, CEO, said ‘The LALY20 ceremony may be virtual, but the celebrations and the LALY spirit will be as real and palpable as ever.’
