Chambers is pleased to announce that Anneli Howard has been selected as one of only ten barristers named in this year’s The Lawyer’s Hot 100. The 100 lawyers on the list have been chosen for their “impact not just on the performance of their firms, companies or chambers, but also the wider business community”. The Lawyer Editor Catrin Griffiths describes the 100 as “ambassadors for the profession” and “champions of champions.”
The Lawyer writes about Anneli as follows:
“Anneli Howard has a string of top-name clients including Visa Europe, BT, Orange Telecom, Ryanair and the London Stock Exchange. She is also standing counsel to the Civil Aviation Authority.
In her field of competition law she is fast becoming the go-to junior at the bar, having earned a reputation for being a collaborative team player who gets the job done.
In the past year Howard successfully acted for Visa in its bid for a Commercial Court summary judgment in the ongoing interchange fees litigation. In doing so she persuaded the court to strike out more than 30 years’ potential damages sought by a group of 12 retailers, totalling over £500m. She will appear for Visa again later this year in a six-month trial on liability.
Howard thrives on managing cases, applying practical methods of cutting court procedures to help clients achieve their goals in a timely and cost-efficient manner.”
The annual supplement identifies members of the legal profession who have excelled in their chosen fields during the past year.
