CLIENT:
COMPANY/FIRM: Legal 500 (2017)
TESTIMONIAL:
Crown Office Chambers houses ‘a wide breadth of counsel covering all aspects of insurance work’ from professional negligence to personal injury. It is also ‘first class for health and safety work’ and highly regarded for construction cases, where it continues to ‘make real inroads’. Some say that chambers is ‘a first port of call’ as ‘there is always a real expert available to advise you’. ‘The quality of the clerks is also a real point of difference and a major reason for choosing the set over others.’ With ‘a “can-do” mentality’, they are ‘ultra-responsive’, ‘great at introducing solicitors to barristers’, and adopt a ‘refreshing’ and ‘creative’ approach to fees.


CLIENT:
COMPANY/FIRM: LEGAL 500 (2016)
TESTIMONIAL:
Crown Office Chambers is ‘a friendly set’, which has ‘enormous strength in depth’ in health and safety, insurance (particularly personal injury) and construction law, ensuring it can field ‘expert counsel at the right level, often at short notice’. The clerks provide ‘a very attentive service’ and are led by the ‘business-minded’ Andy Flanagan, who is ‘accessible, friendly, resourceful, and polite in the face of extenuating circumstances’. Two senior team clerks joined in 2015, namely Oliver Parkhouse from Old Square Chambers, and the ‘terrific’ Chris Sunderland from Keating Chambers, who is considered to be ‘a big coup for the set’. The third senior team clerk is Steve Purse, who is ‘forward-thinking and a pleasure to deal with’

Crown Office Chambers stands out for personal injury and construction law, and also has strong practices in commercial and general insurance. It is recommended for its ‘strength in depth’ and ‘efficient and user-friendly service’. The ‘outstanding’ clerks are ‘commercial and willing to consider cases on innovative fee structures – not something seen at some of the more traditional sets’. Senior managing clerk Andy Flanagan is ‘a true 21st century clerk’, and ‘knowledgeable and receptive to client and solicitor requirements’. Senior team clerk Steve Purse ‘deals with issues in a pragmatic manner’
