Rupert Allen and Natasha Bennett  have been featured by Legal Week  2012 as one of ten “Stars at the Bar”, compiled on the basis of market recommendations of leading junior barristers.

Comments include as follows:

  • Rupert is “Phenomenally bright, [with] a first-rate analytical mind for deconstructing and solving the most difficult legal problems, allied with a great capacity for lateral thought.”
  • Allen has a reputation for dealing with “novel and important matters outside the usual commercial experience of his set”, and as one City lawyer says: “If he’s not a rising star, I don’t know who is.
  • “Natasha Bennett clearly has an impressive future ahead of her”.
  • “Natasha’s financial services, banking, insurance and professional negligence experience has already seen both onshore and offshore use, being frequently lead by Fountain Court’s senior silks, as well as appearing  unled.”
  • “One solicitor says: “Natasha is extremely bright and user-friendly”; another praises her advocacy, saying she “grasped the detail of the dispute quickly, and did a good job on her feet.”
  • “Her contemporaries mark her out strongly; one praising her as “incredibly efficient, a great team player and a pleasure to work with”, and with “wisdom beyond her years”.  A bright future awaits.”
