Quadrant Chambers is the ‘go-to set for shipping’ matters, but it also has a growing reputation for general commercial work and international arbitration. ‘Having successfully carved out a particular specialism in the insurance, energy and trade sectors’ the set is ‘gaining a formidable reputation outside its core areas’. With ‘good strength in depth and guaranteed quality’, chambers is described as ‘a very cost effective option’ which ‘offers real value for money’. Chambers was strengthened this year with the arrivals of a specialist banking and commercial team from 2TG – 2 Temple Gardens; Paul Downes QC, Emily Saunderson, Stewart Chirnside and Joseph Sullivan all joined in January 2018. The ‘extremely well-run’ and ‘efficient’ clerks’ room is led by senior clerks Gary Ventura and Simon Slattery. ‘Knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his barristers’, the ‘tremendous’ Ventura is ‘a bit of a legend’ and ‘a great figurehead’ for chambers; the ‘great’ Slattery regularly meets client requirements ‘no matter how unusual some of those requirements might be’. The team is ‘first rate and always willing to work to urgent deadlines’. Practice managers John Walker and Daryl Hughes are ‘particularly on the ball; they cannot do enough for you’.
