James CranfieldAlbion ChambersAn excellent advocate with good attention to detail. He brings a forensic approach to cases which is sometimes lacking in others. He always has a clear grasp of the issues and can be relied on to present any case strongly. I have no hesitation in briefing him on any case including the more complicated cases involving silks.
