In another matter, Duncan Atkinson QC and Ben Lloyd acted for the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) in the prosecution of Stephen Waterson and Adrian Hoare following the death of Hoare's three-year-old son from asphyxiation, allegedly due to being crushed by Waterson's car seat; Waterson was convicted of manslaughter, while Hoare received a two-year sentence for child cruelty.

Testimonials

Clerks:

Andrew Barnes is a legend. He works to meet my high standards and avoids over commiting barristers to too may cases which prevents diary claises which can cause sudden changes in counsel which he understands can be very disruptive. He communicates very well and is a pleasure to work with.

Andrew the Senior Clerk is one of the most friendly and approachable senior clerks at the bar.

Brilliant. Just brilliant. If there is something that can be done, they do it. If there is something that can’t be done, they still do it. Mark Essex stands out as being very easy to deal with and wants to be helpful and deliver the best outcome. A solicitor’s dream.

Excellent approach to diarising, listing and clerking generally with an understanding of solicitor and client needs.

Richard is always keen to understand my firm’s practice, general development and long-term goals. He has been able to provide carefully thought out recommendations of Counsel who are ideal for any given case. I have been able to establish very good professional relationships with those individuals since.

6 KBW College Hill prides itself on excellent quality work but they will still go that extra mile to look after their clients for all matters.

Richard always goes above and beyond from responding to requests instantaneously and managing client expectations so far as Counsel and negotiating fee structures are concerned. He is extremely personable, dealing with matters professionally whilst maintaining great good humour.

Elizabeth Miller’s levels of efficiency are formidable. She is able to head off any problem many days in advance. Nothing is too much trouble. She is admired and considered to be a true asset to 6KBW College Hill.

One of 6KBW’s greatest strengths is its clerk’s room – Andrew Barnes is at the top of his game, he is commercially sensitive and has always available.

Richard Summerscales is a consummate professional, bringing Counsel-like qualities to the clerks room. Polite and endearing, without being sycophantic, and super-responsive. Having been in the business for over twenty years now, this makes a refreshing change.

Richard Summerscales is a great clerk and always easy to deal with.

They are first class, particularly Andrew Barnes who is a very experienced operator, and able to meet any need.

Set:

6 KBW remain a powerhouse of criminal advocacy.

6KBW College Hill has remained my ‘go-to’ set of Chambers for the full spectrum of criminal defence work since early 2016 given the unfluctuating levels of excellent service offered across the board.

6KBW College Hill is a go-to set for POCA work, with a number of very experienced practitioners in the area.

6KBW College Hill is a top-flight set with some significant players at the criminal bar.

A great and very well established set with a huge number of highly regarded barristers. Members continue to appear in the major cases and whilst many mostly prosecute they also have some great defence barristers

A stellar chambers and full of experts on financial crime cases.

Katherine Hardcastle and Miranda Hill are ‘go to’ counsel for criminal matters.

By far one of the leading sets in the country. Top on crime, financial crime and regulatory. Every one of their barristers is worthy and full of intellectual heavyweights or some of the best jury advocates the country has seen, or in most cases, both.

Great reputation for fraud work and offers a variety of counsel at all levels.

I only use this barrister from this set, however, I always found his clerks to be helpful and accommodating regarding contacting the barrister and have suggested alternative arrangements for hearings if necessary.

Impeccable set offering experience across the board. No job too big or small. Great response times and always willing to help even when they are not covering a case. Chambers seem to have improved on their deficiencies in the past with active and positive recruitment amongst the lower ranks. They have some real academics on board which makes a pleasant change.

More often seen as a ‘prosecution set’, and are certainly often called on by the CPS for serious and complex extradition work. Generally regarded as particularly bright and hardworking, and who bring a particular style to their written and oral advocacy.
