St John’s Chambers is extremely pleased to announce that Leslie Blohm QC has won ‘Chancery Silk of the Year’ at the Chambers Bar Awards 2019, a prestigious award recognising Leslie’s pre-eminence in his key practice areas. Leslie collected his award at the Hilton in London on 31st October 2019, where he was also joined by Chief Executive Derek Jenkins and his Clerk, Paul Bennett.

The awards are based on research for the 2020 edition of Chambers Bar and reflect notable achievements over the past 12 months including outstanding work, and excellence in client service. Based on Leslie’s catalogue of high profile cases including in a number of proprietary estoppel cases (Davies v Davies, McDonald v Rose, Habberfield v Habberfield, and Gee v Gee) this award endorses his national reputation for his extensive experience at the Bar.

“Leslie is a first-class academic lawyer and an excellent court advocate. He’s the go-to silk in this region, if not nationally, for proprietary estoppel matters.” Chambers UK, 2020
