Serjeants’ Inn Chambers



A great tactician who stands her ground firmly yet courteously.

One of the ‘clear heavyweights for clinical negligence‘ work, Serjeants’ Inn Chambers has a ‘breadth and depth‘ of experienced advocates, which is ‘not matched by any other set‘. It demonstrates a ‘real understanding of the instructing solicitor’s expectations‘ and strives to ensure those are met. Recent standout work includes Court of Appeal case XX v Whittington Hospital NHS Trust, in which Christopher Johnston QC  and Claire Watson represented the claimant (who was rendered infertile by negligent late diagnosis of cervical cancer), who recovered the costs of commercial surrogacy in California despite such arrangements being prohibited across the United Kingdom. Angus Moon QC successfully acted for the defendant in the test case of Henderson v Dorset Healthcare University NHS Foundation Trust, in which a woman stabbed her mother to death during a serious psychotic episode; the trust admitted liability for negligent treatment but the claim for damages was precluded on the grounds of illegality.
