Andrew George QCBlackstone ChambersOutstanding attention to detail, a brilliant advocate and very quick to respond.

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.

Andrew George QCBlackstone ChambersIncredibly bright, technically astute, engages the audience and has a very easy going manner in front of clients that puts them immediately at ease, the latter is incredibly important because he is dealing with people who are facing losing their regulated status/livelihoods.

Blackstone Chambers is ‘understandably the leading set in financial services. The quality of counsel and service provided are second to none‘. The chambers ‘is a cornucopia of experience in the area‘ with ‘great bench strength both in silks and juniors‘. Members command respect for their contentious and non-contentious advice, often acting for and against the regulators both at home and abroad. Recently Javan Herberg QC and Ben Jaffey QC successfully acted for the claimant in Qatar Financial Centre Regulatory Authority v First Abu Dhabi Bank. Andrew George QC and Daniel Burgess also represented the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the high-profile case of Ford v Financial Conduct Authority.
