Clinical Negligence

The Legal Directories recognise our strong reputation:

Chambers & Partners says -

"It has some really fantastic barristers, who are very eminent in their field but also very nice and friendly to deal with. The quality is consistent across the whole set, and it's a solid chambers you can really rely on." One solicitor commented: "It is a Rolls-Royce set in terms of quality and is head and shoulders above the rest." (2014)

"1 Crown Office Row is "a head above the majority of other sets due to its sheer depth" and the fact that it houses more than one of the truly big names in this field. An "absolutely superb" set, its silks, juniors and clerks all received abundant praise from interviewees. Both claimant and defendant solicitors appreciate the consistent quality of the set's members, with one commentator stating: "There's a whole line of silks and juniors we'd be happy to use interchangeably." Others spoke well of the clerks, led by Matthew Phipps, saying "they make everything easy" and, like the barristers, are "always pleasant, courteous and do their job fantastically well."" (2013)

This “outstanding set”, a “repository of excellence” in clinical negligence is home to many of the leading barristers in the field. The set has unparalleled strength in depth which allows it to handle the entire range of clinical negligence cases for both claimants and defendants. The younger members of the team who are both “well trained and academically bright” were picked out for particular praise. Their presence should ensure that chambers’ fine reputation endures for years to come. (2012)

This titan of the Clinical Negligence Bar continues to ride high at the top of the rankings. (2010)
