Ivor CollettCrown Office ChambersHe is a fantastic advocate.

Crown Office Chambers is a ‘user-friendly set‘, with a ‘strength and breadth‘ of ‘experienced‘ professional negligence experts. The Ingenious Litigation is a key mandate for chambers, where Ben Quiney QC is leading Carlo Tackzalski in acting for the accountants. John Greenbourne and Ben Quiney QC were involved in Supreme Court’s Perry v Raleys, a landmark case on loss of a chance principles in professional negligence claims against solicitors. The set was recently bolstered by the arrival of leading juniors Ivor Collett and Nicola Atkins from 1 CHANCERY LANE.
