Kenworthy’s Chambers and Partners 2024 Rankings

Kenworthy's Chambers | November 1, 2023

Kenworthy’s Chambers is happy to announce that the 2024 Chambers and Partners rankings have recognised 11 of our Member Barristers, listed across five different teams, three of which were ranked as a set.

The Practice Areas which Chambers and Partners recognised Kenworthy’s Chambers in their 2024 rankings include Immigration, Crime, Costs Litigation, Employment, and Administrative and Public Law.

Practice Manager, Maria Rushworth, reflected on the achievements in this year’s legal directories saying: “I am feeling beyond proud right now. I was ecstatic about our best-ever Legal 500 rankings earlier in October and the Chambers and Partners rankings have further raised the profile of Kenworthy’s Chambers.”

Feeling uplifted, she went on to say: “Thanks to all our Barristers who engaged in our applications and to our Marketing Manager Bruce Cousins for bringing the submissions together. Our success in Chambers and Partners covers Crime, Costs Litigation, Employment, Immigration, plus Administrative and Public Law.”

“Our Immigration, Asylum and Nationality department deserves applause as their work helped our Set in being awarded a Band 1 ranking! We were thrilled to discover the legal directory results this year.”


Kenworthy’s was awarded Band 1 ranking in Immigration for the set. Not only this, but we also had six Barristers recognised by the leading legal directory!

Administrative and Public Law

Our second department to be ranked as a Set is Administrative and Public Law. Chambers and Partners said we possess a “wide-ranging expertise in bringing and defending judicial review challenges as well as advising on public law issues more broadly” and chose to highlight Shazia Khan as a ‘notable practitioner’. Big congratulations to Shazia for being ranked across two separate practice areas.

Additionally, we were ranked Band 3 as a Set for Crime. Our Head and Deputy Head of Chambers, Barry Grennan and Patrick Cassidy were included alongside the outstanding Advocate Denise Fitzpatrick. We also want to award special praise to our Criminal Clerks Paul Mander and Greg Highton who were described as “Helpful, accommodating, and effective”.
