The set: Described as a leading civil and commercial set, Chambers has established a first-class reputation in its fields of practice, providing a wide range of advisory and advocacy services both domestically and internationally in an environment that meets modern business needs.

Personal injury and travel/accidents abroad;

Property litigation;

Public, administrative and constitutional law.

Privy Council work is a notable area of expertise; the set is regularly instructed by governments, corporations and individuals in a wide range of cases. A number of cases deal with the written constitutions of Commonwealth countries, as well as commercial and general common law work. Chambers has strong links with the Caribbean, often appearing in those jurisdictions.

Insolvency and restructuring is a growing area for Chambers. Work includes liquidations, bankruptcies, director's disqualifications, administrations, and international and cross-border insolvencies. The set often acts for the main insolvency practitioners.

Chambers has particular expertise in personal injury and travel law cases, including serious head and spinal injury, industrial injury and claims relating to accidents abroad where jurisdictional issues arise. Fatal accident work and product liability cases are dealt with.

The commercial work (often acting for foreign clients) here also extends to international arbitrations, for and against governments, companies, institutions and individuals throughout the world and Chambers has an international reputation for effective advocacy.

The set is strong on languages, with members fluent in Dutch, French, German, Hindi, Hungarian, Italian, Malay, Punjabi, Russian, Spanish, Swahili and Urdu.
