Set overviews: England and Wales

Although best known for its shipping expertise – with ‘the strongest consolidated offering of shipping silks at the London Bar’ – Quadrant Chambers also provides ‘a premier service’ in respect of commodities disputes, contains ‘the kings and queens’ of aviation work, and has a ‘strong’ travel practice. ‘Barristers are very user-friendly and more importantly, they understand instructing solicitors’ and clients’ needs very well,’ said one source. Since publication of our last guide, Christopher Smith took silk in 2019, commercial litigator Simon Oakes arrived from Outer Temple Chambers, former HFW managing partner Marcus Bowman joined as an associate member, while Michael McParland QC joined 39 Essex Chambers. The ‘second-to-none’ clerks’ room is ‘on the ball’; ‘responsive, helpful, and reliable, they know their client and so recommend the right barrister for the right case, and generally at the right price.’ The ‘great team’ is led by ‘two of the best in the business’: ‘the ever-charming’ Gary Ventura, who is ‘all you look for in a clerk’, and Simon Slattery, who is ‘proactive, engaging, and responsive’; both ‘understand client pressures’. At practice manager level, Paul Bloxham and Daniel Westerman (‘very helpful and efficient’); Daryl Hughes (‘standout; he cannot do enough for clients’); John Walker (‘very accurate, easy to work with, and responsive’); and James Tanner (‘very helpful, quick to response, and clear’) are all worthy of note, as is first junior Billy Beckett.
