Top recognition for Wild Justice lawyer

Huge congratulations to David Wolfe QC, who has featured in The Lawyer’s Hot 100 list published today.

David is a barrister at Matrix Chambers in London and here is what they had to say:

The prestigious list – from the leading UK legal magazine The Lawyer – celebrates the work of the top 100 lawyers in the UK from private practice, in-house and the Bar. The list, which is published annually, recognises extraordinary lawyers who have completed ground-breaking work in the past 12 months.

The Lawyer recognised David for his work on a number of significant environmental cases in 2021 including Save Stonehenge World Heritage Site and Wild Justice.

The Lawyer commented:

“…on many occasions Wolfe’s presence has resulted in real change in the battles for climate and social justice. His work is increasingly strategic in nature as he manages ever-larger teams, and helps equip the next generation of barristers with the skills to carry on the fight.”

We are privileged to be able to work with a team of exceptional lawyers from Leigh Day and Matrix Chambers who have been with us right from the start; indeed they encouraged us to form Wild Justice as a legal entity. Without their expertise and encouragement, we simply wouldn’t be making the progress we’ve achieved over the last few years.

David has been central to our work and not only is he an intellectual dynamo, he’s also a thoroughly lovely guy. We’re delighted to see this richly-deserved recognition from his peers.

Well done!
