Professional negligence in Regional Bar

No5 Barristers Chambers

No5 Barristers Chambers' 'approachable, sensible, and commercial' professional negligence team is a key player in central England, with Mark Anderson QC receiving several prominent solicitors' negligence instructions, such as his recent representation of 25 claimants who had been taken in by an equity release scam involving the conveyancing of their homes,  which they viewed as a breach of their solicitors' fiduciary duties. On the junior end, David Mitchell recently represented two claimants who had purchased a property without being informed of the possibility that mining rights were held by a third party, in concurrent claims for fraud against the owners and for negligence against their solicitors.

St Philips Chambers

St Philips Chambers is able to offer professional negligence expertise at both junior and senior levels, with a strong focus on cases involving solicitors. John Randall QC is the key silk involved in such matters, with a caseload that also includes matters involving accountants and engineers, while John Brennan is a figure of note from the junior ranks.
