The Lawyer’s Hot 100 2008 lists Daniel Beard

07 Jan 2008

Monckton Chambers are proud to announce that Daniel Beard has been listed as one of only three junior barristers to make the The Lawyer’s Hot 100 2008.

The annual supplement identifies members of the legal profession who have excelled in their chosen fields during the past year.

“With European Community Law becoming a vibrant arena within disputes, litigators need a safe pair of hands. They could not do much better than Daniel Beard of Monckton Chambers.

Beard, who was called to the Bar in 1996, is one of the best juniors at the competition and European Bar. One recent victory is testament to that.

Beard took on the might of the European Commission in a case that laid down a precedent that companies in Europe cannot discriminate against contractors. Contractors at Joint European Torus (Jet), the EU’s largest nuclear fusion research project, had not been given the same status as European employees of Jet as they were deemed to have been contracted as third parties.

Beard and fellow Monckton barrister Peter Roth QC won the UK workers £30m in damages. With landmark victories like that, expect Beard to take silk soon.”

Daniel is delighted to be listed in this year’s edition of the Hot 100.
