Always go above and beyond to try and help you in whatever way that they can. Their vast experience enables them to assist in ways that other sets cannot.

Serjeants’ Inn Chambers is a successful, progressive and friendly set with nine core specialisms.

The set: Serjeants’ Inn Chambers is consistently ranked by the directories as a market leader in clinical negligence, professional disciplinary, regulatory and public law. Silks and juniors receive praise for the strength of their advocacy, legal and tactical skills. The clerking team, led by Lee Johnson, is efficient, approachable and helpful.

Types of work undertaken: Clinical negligence and healthcare: clinical negligence has always been a significant area of work at Serjeants’ Inn Chambers. Tenants have led the way in developing the law (Sidaway, Heil, Chester, Thompstone). High-value claims concerning cerebral palsy and catastrophic injuries are undertaken, as well as multi-party actions. In 2012 chambers’ pre-eminent national reputation was demonstrated by tenants appearing for claimants and defendants in important repercussive cases in the appellate courts, such as Selwood (duty of care to non-patients), and in contested first instance trials such as Johnson (£6m cosmetic surgery award) and R v RNOH (paralysis from spinal surgery).

Court of Protection: the team is widely acknowledged to be a market leader in providing representation in all Court of Protection work. Members are instructed by PCTs nationwide, the Official Solicitor, CAFCASS and individuals, in the most sensitive and important cases.

Employment: the growing employment team practises across the entire range of employment law for a variety of claimants and respondents. The team has particular experience in discrimination, whistle-blowing and injunctions in compliance with contractual disciplinary procedures. Recent cases include: Edwards v Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (Supreme Court decision in 2011).

Inquests: for over 20 years members have acted in the most important inquests across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Inquests have become a specialism which members have excelled in, particularly since the adoption of the more rigorous approach required under Art 2 ECHR. Chambers acts for bereaved families and for organisations and individuals facing potential criticism following deaths in hospitals, police stations, mental health units, care homes, prisons, the workplace and military deaths. Recent high-profile examples include the In Amenas terrorist siege, deaths at Deep Cut Army Barracks and deaths after police contact such as those of Raoul Moat and Mark Duggan. Four tenants appeared in the 7 July London Bombings inquests.

Police: the police team has been ranked number one in the UK for over a decade. Members act on behalf of most police forces around the country on a whole range of work, including civil claims, judicial reviews, employment, pensions, sensitive operational advice, inquests, misconduct, performance matters and civil applications (eg ASBOs). Tenants have been retained in many of the high-profile police cases over the last decade including the multi-action May Day 2001 litigation, the shootings of Jean Charles de Menezes and barrister Mark Saunders, Leeds United v WYP as well as litigation arising from the Mark Duggan shooting.

Product liability: Serjeants’ Inn Chambers’ particular product liability expertise is in cases involving injury caused by medical or pharmaceutical products and devices and over the last two years members of chambers have been involved in a number of high-profile product liability group actions.

Professional discipline and regulatory: the set has always been at the forefront of professional disciplinary work in healthcare and police fields. Members act for solicitors, barristers, academics and sportsmen. Sir Robert Francis QC chaired the inquiry into the failings of the Mid-Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust with several members of chambers representing core participants. Recent high-profile cases in the police field have included the prosecutions (with associated judicial reviews) of a slew of chief officers, for example Operations Alice and Silk (Plebgate).

Public and administrative: the team’s work spans judicial review, information law, sports law, mental health law and Treasury work. It has particular experience of major inquests and public inquires including the 7/7 London Bombings inquests and the Baha Mousa and Mid-Staffordshire public inquiries.

Business and specialist crime: the team specialises in cases involving professional people and organisations, and where the charges range from murder, manslaughter (including corporate manslaughter), health and safety offences, misconduct in public office, perjury and sexual offences to fraud and other financial crime.
