Kenworthy’s Chambers Legal 500 Rankings 2024

Kenworthy's Chambers | October 10, 2023

We are delighted to announce that the 2024 Legal 500 rankings have recognised Kenworthy’s Chambers with 19 of our Member Barristers listed across, a record-breaking, eight of our teams.

The Practice Areas in which Kenworthy’s Chambers was ranked in the 2024 Legal 500 rankings are Crime, Costs, Employment, Family, Immigration, Inquests and Inquiries, Personal Injury, and Professional Disciplinary Law.

Thrilled by the number of teams represented in this year’s Legal 500, an ecstatic Maria Rushworth said: “I am delighted to see the inclusion of eight of our teams in Legal 500’s rankings. Our continued success in the world’s leading legal directory makes me proud to be the Practice Manager here, with over one-third of our Member Barristers now appearing in the 2024 rankings.”

She went on to say: “Congratulations are in order for all of our Barristers who applied, and I’d like to give a special mention to Haroon Rashid, for achieving Kenworthy’s Chambers’ first inclusion in the field of Personal Injury.”

“Haroon has been hard at work putting his industry knowledge to use delivering a series of Personal Injury seminars for free, as CPD training for Personal Injury Lawyers, so it is rewarding to see him recognised as a Leading Junior by Legal 500.”


An incredible eight of our Member Barristers were recognised in the field of Criminal Law. Showcasing the strength and depth Kenworthy’s has when it comes to Crime.

Congratulations to our Head of Costs Margaret McDonald for her inclusion as a Leading Junior in this year’s Legal 500 and John Meehan who was named by the legal directory as a ‘Rising Star’.

Bruce Henry and Sarah Johnson made the rankings for their expertise in Employment Law, with Legal 500 saying: “Bruce Henry gives clear and firm advice and delivers it in a professional and empathetic way, which is good for lay clients. He is brilliant with claimant matters and his advocacy in the Employment Tribunal is second-to-none.”

Sarah Johnson was recognised by Legal 500 again for her work within Family, Children and Domestic Violence, this time alongside Paul Im Thurn who was described as a ‘go-to Barrister’ who “provides great advice and is a strong Advocate.”

Kenworthy’s has an extremely strong Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Team which is reflected in our strong representation in the Legal 500. Five of our Immigration Barristers were named as Leading Juniors and we, once again, retained a Tier 1 ranking in Immigration for the set.
