Montgomery QC, Clare – Hot 100

Testimony to the breadth of Clare Montgomery QC’s skills as a barrister is exemplified by her involvement in two of 2004’s leading cases, one commercial, the other criminal.

Montgomery continues to act for the liquidators of BBCI in its mammoth ongoing malfeasance action against the Bank of England, and was also instructed to act for Sîon Jenkins in a successful appeal against his conviction for the murder of his stepdaughter Billie-Jo. By overturning Jenkins’ 1997 conviction at the Court of Appeal, Montgomery has potentially shed light on a significant miscarriage of justice; while in the BCCI trial, although Gordon Pollock QC has attracted most of the attention, it is Montgomery who has maintained the day-to-day charge of one of the most important cases of the year. Quite simply, the best of the bar.
