Congratulations to Kendrah Potts who has been named as one of The Lawyer’s Hot 100. Kendrah is one of only five junior barristers to be listed this year.

The Lawyer’s annual list is described by The Lawyer as having “just two things in common. The first is excellence… whatever world they come from, they are all doing amazing work. The second is relevance… The work they are doing is important NOW.

The Lawyer’s write-up on Kendrah Potts reads as follows:

‘Kendrah Potts can be defending international footballers from betting charges one day and working on a multi-jurisdictional £600m fraud matter the next. With a caseload to envy, it is safe to say the 4 New Square junior made no mistake when she left a career in private practice for the Bar.

An alumna of Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, Onside Law and Mishcon de Reya, Potts made the career switch in 2017 and has not looked back since. Often instructed as sole counsel, she has succeeded in crafting a complete practice that combines commercial and civil fraud with a side of sports; with all areas often overlapping.

One of her most under-the-radar successes came for Birmingham City FC last year, as she helped the club avoid a second points deduction after being cleared of a breach of financial rules. And while a Hot 100 accolade may not carry the same weight as a statue at St Andrew’s stadium, there’s no doubting Potts’ star will continue to shine.’
