Set overviews: England and Wales

A professional, friendly and efficient set’, St Ives Chambersoffers a wide range of experienced and talented barristers’. In addition to being ‘a hidden gem in Birmingham, offering a high-standard of family law expertise and advocacy’, it has ‘a large number of barristers experienced in housing cases, who clients have confidence in to attend hearings involving a whole raft of issues’. Since the publication of our last guide, Graeme Simpson joined the criminal group from Citadel Chambers. Fellow criminal practitioner Dafydd Enoch QC joined as a door tenant. In the family and children law team, Sarah Fahy and Jayne Mullen returned to chambers in January; former family solicitor Hasnat Bashir arrived in chambers, later to be joined by Terri Mason, a children law solicitor of 14 years; while Adem Muzaffer has been appointed a district judge. The set, whose seminars ‘provide invaluable guidance to the Birmingham legal community’, has a clerking team that provides a ‘second-to-none’ service and ‘treat firms as if they were their only client’. Civil and family finance practice manager Ross Hands is ‘instrumental in matching suitable barristers to cases based on particular skillsets and client needs’ (assistant practice managers in the team include Catherine Merry and the ‘great’ Hannah Yates). The children law clerking team is led by Sarah Robinson and includes the ‘fantastic’ Nick Burdon and ‘very efficient’ Asma Akhtar. Philip Hidson heads up the criminal clerking team, and Jackie Maskew is the chambers director. Offices in: Birmingham
