Brick Court Chambers is pleased to announce that Maya Lester QC has been awarded the World Export Controls Review practitioner of the year award. Maya is the first non-American to win this award since its launch in 2015, due to her “truly significant” contribution to sanctions law and its ongoing development. The WorldECR Awards “recognise outstanding work, vision, best practice, commercial benefit to the company, and contribution to international security, of organisations and individuals working in the fields of export control and sanctions compliance and non-proliferation”. They describe Maya as “a top-of-the-class performer at the top of her game”.

Lord Anderson of Ipswich KBE QC who nominated Maya, spoke of the ‘remarkable legal practice and experience Maya has developed in the field of sanctions, which is unparalleled in its depth and breadth … the vision, energy and commitment Maya gives to the world of sanctions, in particular by her daily work on the sanctions blog she co-founded … [and her] position as an authority and thought-leader on sanctions not only for clients seeking her assistance, but also for governments, legislatures and journalists.’
