1 Crown Office Row is renowned for handling a variety of public law matters on behalf of central government, and for handling an increasing number of cases on behalf of claimants.
“1 Crown Office Row is a ‘formidable set’ with outstanding public law experience, especially in cases that have a human rights angle. Chambers specialises in challenges concerning healthcare matters, environmental law, fair trial rights and prisons. Indeed, Philip Havers QC is instructed in a claim regarding the government’s failure to prevent smoking in prisons; a case that will reach the Supreme Court in late 2017.” (Legal 500 2017)
“The chambers is well clerked and offers good resources to solicitors.” “Really helpful. They made every effort to make sure that I had someone available and that papers were delivered to the right counsel. They were really on the ball.” (Chambers & Partners 2017)
