“Few, if any, can rightly claim to have the advocacy experience of Seabrook, who is widely applauded for his “excellent work” in GMC hearings and criminal medical malpractice cases.” (Chambers & Partners 2012)

“Robert Seabrook QC comes highly recommended for his excellent forensic skills. Police and medical crime and disciplinary work are his forte and he fits neatly into the high-profile case arena, having such cases as the prosecution of Professor Sir Roy Meadows under his belt.” (Chambers & Partners 2008)
