The Hearing: Episode 88 – Trevor Sterling (Moore Barlow)

This is an episode that may resonate with many of you. Yasmin speaks to Trevor Sterling about the chance turn of events that led him to pursuing a career in law. And, in spite of Trevor’s unconventional route into the profession, in July 2021 he made history by becoming the first black senior partner at a top 100 UK law firm.

Trevor, a personal injury and clinical negligence practitioner, has been involved in lots of high profile and landmark cases – including acting on behalf of 60 Jimmy Savile abuse victims and families of those killed in the 2016 Croydon tram crash. Yasmin also chats to Trevor about his rise to the top and, more importantly, his determination to bring others from disadvantaged backgrounds with him. As you will hear, Trevor is a lawyer who cares passionately about improving diversity and social equality.
