Jonathan ButtersDevereuxJonathan is a super junior; always spot on and can get to the crux of a case with apparent ease.

The personal injury team at Devereux is described as a ‘super set of chambers with a large depth of knowledge’. The ‘razor sharp’ Stephen Killalea KC continues to excel in the field, with consistently impressive work on high-value catastrophic cases, particularly those caused by road traffic accidents. In addition, junior Colin Mendoza is consistently involved in high-quality, independently-led work in high-value cases of serious injury. Notably, he is assisting on quantum in a claim against the event governing body brought by a marshal at a motocross event at Weymouth Beach who, whilst assisting a fallen rider, was hit by the second defendant’s motorcycle after he had ignored yellow flags and took the jump at full speed, landing on the claimant’s head, which resulted in brain damage. Stephen Cottrell , who is frequently led by top-tier silks on the most complex of matters, and Jonathan Butters , who has a developing specialism in mesothelioma matters, both warrant particular recognition also.
