Serjeants’ Inn Chambers



His ability to retain and recall information is incredible.

Serjeants’ Inn ChambersJohn Beggs QC and Cecily White acted for Essex Police in the compensation claim brought by television presenter Michael Barrymore, following his arrest after the discovery of a man’s body in his swimming pool; in a landmark Court of Appeal decision, it was established that nominal damages only were to be paid, as although the arrest was made under unlawful procedure, only nominal damages will be paid where the person could and would have been lawfully arrested had the correct procedures been followed. Other work highlights include Dijen Basu QC representing Greater Manchester Police in a number of human rights claims arising out of prolonged retention of human tissue from murder victims, and Gerard Boyle QC successfully defending the former Chief Constable of Cheshire, Simon Byrne, against more than 70 allegations of gross misconduct; Byrne was cleared of all charges.
