Moore Barlow Senior Partner wins The Black Talent Senior Leader Award

Last night, Trevor Sterling, Moore Barlow’s Senior Partner and Head of Major Trauma won The Black Talent – Senior Leader award at the Black Talent Awards ceremony.

Now in its second year following a successful launch in 2022, the Black Talent Awards spotlight exceptional Black professionals who serve as role models across diverse industries.

Trevor made history at age 28 when he became the first black and youngest partner in the history of his previous firm, and in 2021, he was elected Senior Partner at Moore Barlow Solicitor, becoming the first black Senior Partner of a top 100 UK firm.

A big thank you to my 86-year-old mother, Lydia, part of the Windrush generation and my sister Corene who both supported me on stage as my guests. Both of my parents, Lydia and Ivan and the Windrush Generation allowed me to stand on their shoulders.

I can’t thank Moore Barlow enough for making a real difference and fully supporting me as we embark on this historic journey. And, of course, a warm thank you to the inspirational Denise Myers and the fantastic team behind the Black Talent Awards. They’re not just showcasing Black talent; they’re building a ladder for the next generation, and I couldn’t be more grateful for their dedication.
