Individually, Greg Leyden and Gary Rose are both excellent – skilled clerks, who carry out their jobs with professionalism and good humour.

The service is really first-class – down to earth and efficient. They are a joy to deal with and are determined to help.

The set appears to have robust administrative support. We always get timely responses from Joe Clayton.

They are always on the mark – Gary Rose and Joe Clayton in particular.

They are always very helpful when we have inquiries and are very thorough in their responses. In particular, Greg Leydon is always extremely helpful.

They are excellent, especially Bernie. Quick to respond, clear proposals around charging.

They provide a great service and understand client needs and driver to ensure client satisfaction.

Set:

Well-known shipping set but I have only worked with this individual

7 KBW is excellent. My go-to set. Intellectual rigour and fantastic service.

7 KBW are first rate and a go-to set for insurance and jurisdictional issues for me. Strength at all levels. They are good at keeping me up to date.

7 KBW has considerable strength in depth in the areas of insurance and arbitration law. All the barristers perform to the same high standards and are excellent members of any litigation team. They are happy to provide in-house talks which are always very well-received.

7 KBW is by far and away the leading insurance and reinsurance set with real strength in depth.

7 KBW would be my go to set for trade and shipping disputes. A very wide and impressive pool of talent. Their clerks are also very easy to deal with and responsive.

7 King’s Bench Walk provide accredited training programmes and seminars which focus on any recent developments in the law, providing continuing education. There is always good availability of counsels even at short notice enabling us to provide prompt assistance to clients whenever requested.

7KBW are a set I have known and worked with for many years. They are at the top of their field with very experienced and knowledgeable counsel across the board. I would feel confident using any one of their counsel, both senior and junior.

7KBW are generally a very good set with barristers of a very high standard.

7KBW are my turn to set for Shipping work.

7KBW are very strong in shipping litigation and my firm, Norton Rose Fulbright, would not hesitate to instruct the barristers there. They also offer webinars that we find useful.

7KBW are, in my view, the leading insurance set, with particularly strong QCs covering the full range of insurance.

7KBW has a number of barristers with experience and specialist skills in the area of civil fraud. More than is perhaps generally appreciated.

7KBW has excellent barristers overall – but I am not able to add detailed commentary.

7KBW is a first-class set, made up of a group of the most outstanding legal minds in England.

7KBW is a leading set of insurance barristers who are always on our shortlist of Chambers to approach. I also find their regular bulletins very well-written and informative.

7KBW is a very strong set. Very strong analytically and with a number of very impressive market leaders.

7KBW is an excellent set and most the barristers I have worked with are all of an excellent standard.

7KBW is one of my preferred sets, from the quality of their barristers to the co-operative and common-sense attitude of the clerks.

7KBW is our first go-to set for shipping and insurance. Counsel of all levels are highly efficient and able to deliver high-quality service within tight deadlines.

7KBW is, in my experience, an excellent chambers to deal with – all the counsel I have dealt with have been very impressive.

7KBW represents one of our closest relationships at the Bar, particular in the insurance and shipping contexts. They are commercial in their approach, user-friendly, and clearly aware of the need to recognise the increasing costs and other demands placed on us by our clients.

7KBW specialise in shipping and have several leading practitioners.

A great set of chambers, with acknowledged experts reinsurance, insurance and commercial disputes.

All of the Counsel that I work within the Chambers always make themselves available when needed, and make you feel like a priority.

Chambers is the pre-eminent set for audit negligence cases: it has been involved in every major audit negligence claim over the last 20 years.

Great set for commercial work, especially insurance. Always a premium service.

High-quality Chambers with top-end Counsel

His chambers are one of the five or six leading commercial sets, with a range of first-class practitioners at every level.

I have been working with a number of their members, primarily on commercial cases. We have been instructing Michael Ryan on a big fraud case, and he has been superb. Andrew Pearson is also good for fraud cases.

I have instructed a lot of barristers from 7KBW and am almost always impressed by their strength in depth.

I have worked with 7KBW for many years now. They are at the top of their field and I would feel confident in using any junior or senior from this set.

Interesting set of barristers – certainly those we have used have been excellent – Michael Ryan, in particular, has stood out dealing with complex issues of law and fact on a complex civil fraud case in an extremely impressive way, both in terms of analysis and turn around times.

My ‘go to’ set for insurance and marine work. Excellent strength in depth and availability of consistently very high quality counsel.

Premier Insurance set. Huge strength in depth at junior and Silk levels. Very good articles and reports on legal developments.

The set has very strong expertise in the energy field, including in relation to international trade aspects of energy work and insurance-related disputes. A number of members also have substantial experience in other aspects of energy work, such as contract disputes, pricing disputes, etc.

Very experienced shipping barristers (even juniors), there is always counsel available to assist.

Very strong at both leader and junior level, with many members having substantial experience of banking and finance work. Counsel are frequently involved in the biggest commercial cases.

Very strong in international trade, shipping and insurance.

With their commercial expertise, members also appear in other jurisdictions, including Hong Kong, Singapore, Bermuda, Cayman Islands, the Bahamas, the British Virgin Islands and Gibraltar, and before inter-national arbitration tribunals in numerous jurisdictions.  Members undertake advisory work and the creation of written submissions and legal documents for litigation and non-contentious matters.

RECRUITMENT

7KBW attracts pupils of only the highest quality, and pursues a policy of only taking tenants of such quality either from those starting their careers in law or from those in mid-career who have elected to change from another part of the profession. The emphasis on quality has meant a steady but selective growth in the overall number of tenants over the past years.
