John McKendrick QC nominated for ‘Barrister of the Year 2016’ award


John McKendrick QC is among the nominations for The Lawyer Awards, Barrister of the Year 2016.

John is a specialist in public law and commercial law and practises internationally. Highly sought after, he has appeared in more than seven Court of Appeal and Supreme Court cases over the last two years.

A fluent Spanish speaker, he is regularly invited to address lawyers and government officials on anti-corruption, corporate liability and the rule of law across Latin America and the Caribbean.  Working with the British Embassy/High Commission he has advised governments and officials how best to combat financial crime and corruption.

He has worked with international law enforcement agencies on combatting the use of off-shore structures and advised major UK PLCs and overseas companies on anti-corruption policies.  Among the initiatives on anti-bribery, he has trained the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the United Nations, the IADB and the European Union.

In 2014/15 John briefed the Peruvian Congress, Members of the Brazilian Supreme Court, and the Costa Rican Legislative Assembly (invitation of the EU).

Much of John’s practice continues to involve mainstream public law work from London. He is an acknowledged leading expert in the Court of Protection.

A published author, John wrote the Latin American chapter of the major international textbook, Lissack and Horlick on Bribery, published by Butterworths.

He has just published ‘Darien: A Journey in Search of Empire’ which has been widely reviewed by the national media.
