Holly Quirk, an associate barrister in Browne Jacobson’s Manchester office, was awarded the Legal Professional of the Year Award at this year’s Manchester Young Talent Awards.

Holly specialises in Regulatory and Education work, advising an impressive client base from major health and mental health trusts across the North West to major central government departments. Her achievements include being at the forefront of a national first in the UK education sector on the taboo subject of female genital mutilation (FGM) after she secured the country’s first FGM Protection Order on behalf of a school.

In awarding Holly the accolade, the judges commented that as “an exceptional rising star in the profession, she has led with precision and sensitivity many cases aligned with the Education setting including high profile cases. She has demonstrated clear commitment to clients in the face of adversity, worked to champion women’s rights, mentor others and has been integral in the growth of their firm.”

Ben Bentley, Barrister and Partner at Browne Jacobson, said : Holly is one of the firm’s rising stars and we are delighted for her. Since completing her pupillage at the firm she has developed a thriving practice and her commitment to her clients is exceptional. She is also an outstanding role model through her work in promoting diversity and mentoring young people interested in a career in law.”

The awards are organised by JCI Manchester, a not-for-profit organisation providing 18 to 40 year olds with development opportunities that empower young people to create positive change.
