Chambers of Tim Amos QC > The Legal 500 Rankings
Queen Elizabeth Building (QEB) has 'unparalleled strength in depth at all levels, from heavyweight silks, a handful of much-sought-after recently appointed QCs, several of the go-to senior juniors, and many up-and-coming juniors who are destined for great things,’ eulogised one source. The set's members are particularly well known for dealing with the financial consequences of relationship breakdown (‘the strongest sets for financial work. It is great from top to bottom with outstanding talent and no weak links’) but they are also 'immensely experienced' in all aspects of family law, according to clients. Stewart Leech QC is acting for the crown estate in Princess Tessy v Prince Louis of Luxembourg, a high-profile royal divorce that has been attracting a lot of publicity.
Regarded as ‘one of the more cerebral chambers in London’, Queen Elizabeth Building (QEB), is the ‘go-to chambers for complex financial applications’ thanks to ‘unparalleled strength in depth at all levels, from heavyweight silks, a handful of much-sought-after recently appointed QCs, several of the leading senior juniors, and many up-and-comers destined for great things’. Solicitors note how the transition from Lewis Marks QC to Tim Amos QC as head of chambers was ‘seamless’ and welcome the set’s ability to accommodate private FDRs. In recent news, Catherine Cowton took silk in 2019. Offering ‘exemplary service’ QEB’s clerks’ room ‘shows all other sets how it should be done’. The team is full of ‘consummate professionals who work hard for their members and the solicitors who instruct them’, and has become ‘more user-friendly and supportive’ under the leadership of ‘star’ senior clerk Howard Rayner. Guiding the chambers operation ‘with charm and diplomacy’, Rayner ‘maintains a great balance between commerciality and flexibility,’ said one source, ‘it is easy to tell him what a client needs – be it a good price or advice in a hurry (or both!).’ First junior Jon Bartlett is also highly regarded by instructing solicitors.
