5pb is lucky to have some of the most diligent and exciting talent at the Criminal Bar and at present has 45 members, 12 of whom are QCs.

The set: The Chambers of Miranda Moore QC and Julian Christopher QC continues to excel in a broad array of practice areas. While generally considered to be a criminal set, its barristers recognise the ever-evolving nature of the Bar; to be flexible enough to cope with the varying rigours of publicly funded work, a wide spectrum of practice sectors must be covered. This breadth of expertise also assists clients with complex problems.

Chambers’ members are frequently published and appear regularly at international conferences, while hosting their own Law Society-accredited CPD seminars, as well as contributing to and editing various publications (including Blackstones and Archbold). Broadcasters and journalists seek chambers’ advice. The set has seven Recorders of the Crown Court, a substantial number of practitioners on the Attorney General’s and SFO lists (across the various panels), and special counsel (representing those alleged of threatening national security). Chambers has expertise in all aspects of forensic science, including digital material.

Types of work undertaken: While maintaining its leadership in general criminal work, chambers has also developed successful practices in the complementary fields of criminal and civil fraud, corporate criminal liability, asset recovery, public inquiries, extradition, trading standards, consumer law, regulatory and disciplinary proceedings, health and safety, environmental law and media law.

5pb has one of the most efficient sets of clerks to ensure a reliable and cost-effective case management process. Chambers believes it to be of the utmost importance that it stays at the forefront of the modernisation that the Bar is currently undergoing.
