12 King’s Bench Walk is ‘the nearest thing to the complete chambers package for the personal injury practitioner; its strength in depth is second to none’. The ‘knowledgeable, accessible and reliable’ members ‘make a great effort to turn papers around quickly and efficiently’, and are ‘ahead of the curve in a sector that is constantly changing’. While it is ‘the first choice for PI litigation’, chambers also has an employment and clinical negligence practice. In the clerks’ room, individuals are ‘friendly, approachable and well versed in the skills of their tenants’. Graham Johnson now solely leads the clerking team, following the recent departure of former joint senior clerk John Cooper. Johnson is ‘a star clerk, who is head and shoulders above most others in the profession’; his ‘professionalism and willingness to assist is a credit to the set’. Sam Carter and Lexie Johnson are the practice team leaders. Offices in: London
