Within: Leading Juniors

Simon Hattan - Serle CourtAbsolutely brilliant – a real all-rounder who you can totally trust on a range of commercial and financial litigation.

Within: Banking and finance (including consumer credit)

Serle Court has 'good-quality barristers' and its 'juniors are often better value for money than those at some of the leading banking sets', according to clients. The set punches well above its weight with members such as David Blayney QC and Simon Hattan having been instructed on several blockbuster cases, most notably the RBS Group litigation, where they were key members of the team that represented RBS.
