Lawyer Rankings(Leading Silks) Ranked: Tier 4
Blackstone Chambers is a ‘market-leading set‘ that provides ‘excellent service‘. As well as financial services regulatory matters, the set is highly rated for broader banking and finance disputes and is praised for its ability ‘to provide suitable alternative barristers of the same quality and standard‘ if original choices are busy. A notable recent case was Roman Pipia v BGEO Group LTD which involved five members at varying stages, including Andrew George QC and Andrew Hunter QC respectively, acting for the claimants and defendant. Javan Herberg QC was also involved in PCP Partners v Barclays Bank, leading ex-CEO John Varley’s intervention.
Blackstone Chambers is ‘a standout set in the civil fraud space, with some real heavy hitters and real strength at silk, senior-junior and junior levels‘. Clients appreciate its ‘very substantial bench strength in this area of law which is very useful‘ in particular at the junior end where it has ‘some fantastic young barristers‘. Among the set’s impressive caseload, a major highlight was Sabbagh v Khoury in which Anthony Peto QC and Peter Head represented the claimant, while Andrew Hunter QC led for the defendant. Robert Anderson QC and Daniel Burgess successfully obtained interim relief for the claimant in Wildbrain v Robson & anr.
