Undoubtedly one of the top sets for clinical negligence work in the country’, 1 CROWN OFFICE ROW has ‘great strength in depth’ with ‘a good range’ of silks, as well as senior juniors and junior counsel who are ‘all very hardworking and knowledgeable’ and ‘not unsurprisingly involved in lots of the most interesting and high-profile cases’. In London, chambers’ strengths lie in regulatory, public law, and inquests and inquiries. Meanwhile, on the South Eastern circuit, the set has a strong team across the commercial, professional negligence, crime, as well as family and children law disciplines. In recent chambers news, Robert Kellar QC and Neil Sheldon QC took silk in 2019, while clinical negligence specialist Cara Guthrie joined from Outer Temple Chambers in June 2019. In London, the clerking team is led by senior clerk Matthew Phipps and first juniors John Mclaren and Andrew Tull; David Bingham is the senior clerk in Brighton and is ably assisted by first junior James Hart.
