Outer Temple Chambers is ‘an excellent set of chambers, with a great collection of barristers‘ who are ‘technically brilliant‘. The set offers ‘not merely the numbers to provide strength in depth, but also a range of sub-specialisms, which gives them a real edge‘. Eliot Woolf QC acts for the claimant in the wrongful birth case Khan v Meadows, listed to appear before the Supreme Court. Jonathan Hand QC successfully resisted an appeal against an order refusing to extend time for service of the trust’s defence on behalf of the claimant in Kember (Dcd) v Croydon Health Services NHST. In other highlights, Robert Dickason successfully represented the defendant in Bass v Ministry of Defence, the first of the contested Q Fever liability trials. ‘Polished advocate‘ Katarina Sydow is definitely a junior to watch in the years to come.
