The leading legal directories with editorial comment – Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners – have recently published their latest editions and have been fulsome in their praise of the set’s expertise and levels of service. Chambers and Partners refers to “This group of “absolutely outstanding barristers” and adds “The clerks, led by David Bingham, are brilliant, approachable and always get back to you. They are friendly, upbeat and don’t mess around”. Legal 500 reports that “The set provides “London levels of service and expertise” and “all counsel are approachable and good team players”.

Both Directories recognise the pre-eminent strength of the family law team listing 6 individual Members as leading juniors in this field. The quality of the smaller civil team is recognised with “band 1” leading practitioner ranking for several barristers in commercial dispute resolution, real estate, regulatory, health and safety, licencing, personal injury and employment. The leader of our criminal team which is about to undergo major expansion is recognised as a leading practitioner and the broad range of our criminal practice is acknowledged.

The set is again recognised by Legal 500 as one of the top three regional sets in the South Eastern region.
