Devereux is one of the UK'€™s leading civil and commercial sets with 53 barristers, including 11 silks, offering in-depth expertise in its core areas of law. Chambers deals with all aspects of commercial litigation (including insurance and reinsurance, IT and telecoms, and professional negligence); clinical negligence; employment; personal injury; and tax and finance.

The set: The set'€™s standing in the market place is confirmed by the fact that many silks and juniors have been shortlisted for or won '€˜Barrister of the Year'€™ in their area of expertise. Since 2012, the set won or has been nominated for '€˜Chambers of the Year'€™ by the British Legal Awards, The Lawyer Awards or the Halsbury Legal Awards. It has been applauded for combining legal excellence with a modern and collaborative approach.

Devereux runs continuing professional development seminars in its leading areas of practice and its members are regularly invited to speak at conferences or write for leading specialist publications.

Types of work undertaken: In the core areas mentioned above, Devereux offers advice and litigates in the County Courts, Employment and Tax Tribunals, the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court. Members deal with often complex and high-value disputes in domestic, as well as international, jurisdictions. The set also acts before and as arbitrators and mediators.

In each area of expertise, stellar silks are supported by a large team of excellent juniors. Both are backed up by experienced practice managers and knowledgeable business services staff.

At this set you find excellent barristers who truly add value. Barristers offer clear and robust legal advice and outstanding advocacy while remaining approachable.

Members'€™ experience of complementary areas of work provides a distinct advantage in disputes where there is a cross-over between, for example, tax and employment; professional negligence and insurance; employment and finance; and personal injury and employment. Exposure to a broad range of work means that junior tenants gain extensive experience of all aspects of oral and written advocacy at an early stage.

A number of barristers also benefit from their previous experience working outside the Bar: in solicitors'€™ firms, as part of strategic management consultants, with industry federations, for Ofcom or the Competition Commission. This brings an understanding of the pressures of the competitive environment you operate in.
