Astraea Linskills were honoured to be invited to the 16th annual 5RB quiz. The firm marked its first appearance by beating the other 24 teams in attendance (including those from London’s top media law firms and media organisations like the Guardian and the BBC).

5RB are the leading barristers for Media and Communications Law, and regularly represent celebrities, royalty and politicians in Court.

The event helped raise funds for the Free Representation Unit and Advocate. It included rounds on music, sport and current affairs. The team was particularly pleased to unearth some quite obscure answers on old legal dramas and music from Rocky IV.

Astraea Director James Roochove said “The 5RB quiz is a fixture in the media law world, featuring the crème de la crème of the London legal scene. For our new(ish) firm from Liverpool to get an invite was amazing. To win it was something else! Commiserations to the Guardian, who really did push us all the way.

We would like to give a huge thanks to 5RB, especially the wonderful Georgina Gills and her team in organising this brilliant event, Quizmaster extraordinaire Adam Speker KC, and Ben Hamer for being our allotted (and invaluable) 5RB star guest.”
