Sallie Bennett-Jenkins QC – 2 Hare Court Chambers

Sallie Bennett-Jenkins QC has been cited on a number of occasions as a leading silk by The Legal 500 and Chambers UK and, prior to taking silk, as a leading junior. She was appointed Queen’s Counsel in October 2006 following a period of 8 years as Treasury Counsel, and has since become first choice defence counsel for firms with private clients who demand an incisive advocate with a mastery of detail, and who can instil real confidence in the client. She has been described as having a “thoroughly devastating style of cross examination which is a pleasure to watch”.

In silk, she has encouraged and maintained a diverse defence practice which ranges from murder to fraud and advisory work for multinational corporations in respect of computer crime, Health and Safety and Food and Drugs. Her back catalogue of cases confirms her ability to handle the conduct of multi-handed trials, often involving ‘cut throat’ defences, in which the issues range from murder to multi-million pound money laundering.

Sallie is a mother to six children.

 

Amma Asante – Award Winning Writer and Director

BAFTA award winning Writer/Director Amma Asante made an unusual entry into filmmaking.  As a child, Asante attended the Barbara Speake stage school in London, where she trained as a student in dance and drama.  She began her career as a child actress, appearing as a regular in the popular British school drama Grange Hill. She fronted the “Just Say No” campaign of the 1980s and was one of nine Grange Hill children to take it to the Reagan White House. She went on to gain credits in other British television series including Desmond’s (Channel 4) and Birds of a Feather (BBC1) and was a Children’s Channel presenter for a year.

Asante’s labour of love project Belle marks her second feature film. Asante began developing the 18th century period drama, with producer Damian Jones in 2010 after he sent her a postcard print of the infamous portrait featuring Dido Belle and her cousin Elizabeth Murray.

Belle opened to phenomenal success across the United States, beating Spiderman 2 on its first weekend in the cinemas both opened in. It has been championed by the likes of Oprah Winfrey who threw a garden party in her own home for Amma and the cast, which aired on Entertainment Tonight.

In January this year Asante was announced as one of Variety’s ‘10 Directors to Watch’.
