Lawyer Rankings(Leading Juniors) Ranked: Tier 2
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.
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.
