Crown Office Chambers is ‘a particularly impressive set‘ with a ‘good range of highly experienced advocates‘ who are able to cover the full gamut of personal injury and industrial disease cases, including group actions. In one instruction of note, David Platt QC acted as lead counsel in the historic sexual abuse case of X Children v Minister for Health and Social Services, which has resulted in an immediate change in the law in Jersey to control the size of such claims. Platt QC also led Alexander Macpherson in Goldscheider v Royal Opera House, a high-profile noise claim against the Royal Opera involving an allegation of acoustic shock by an orchestra member, in which they acted for the defendant. Peter Houghton has recently been involved in cases raising issues of novel mesothelioma treatment (immunotherapy) costs.
