5RB Barrister in The Lawyer’s Hot 100
David Sherborne named in 2012 list as go-to media lawyer
5RB is pleased to announce that David Sherborne has been listed in The Lawyer’s ‘Hot’ 100 2012 as a top barrister and "go-to junior for all types of media law".
David’s entry reads
"Last year belonged to David Sherborne. The 5 Raymond Buildings barrister has had a role in pretty much all of the big media cases going, from privacy injunctions to phone-hacking.
He is currently to be seen on the Leveson Inquiry into the press, representing 53 ‘core participants’. Sherborne’s rise to stardom was always on the cards. As long ago as 2004 The Lawyer identified him as a junior to watch. As well as Leveson, Sherborne has been instructed by a host of celebrities – and Berwin Leighton Paisner’s Graham Shear – to bring civil claims against News International over phone-hacking. Not to be outdone, Sherborne also went to Strasbourg on behalf of Formula 1 supremo Max Mosley, supporting Lord David Pannick QC in Mosley’s human rights case against the Government. Mosley lost, but the case highlights how Sherborne is now the go-to junior for all types of media law."
