Zoe Barton

Email:
Wilberforce Chambers (Chambers of Michael Furness QC)

Position

Call: 2003

Career

Zoë has for several years been ranked as a leading junior in both Chambers & Partners and the Legal 500 and in the current editions is variously described as “a very persuasive, confident advocate” who “provides forthright, unwavering advice” and is “easy to work with and a good advocate in court”, with one solicitor commenting “she’s absolutely fabulous and is very persuasive before the court. I would not want to be on the end of a cross-examination by her”.

Whilst she is particularly recommended for property litigation, trusts and probate and professional negligence, her practice encompasses the breadth of commercial chancery work.

Her property work encompasses all aspects of landlord and tenant and real property and she is regularly in court both for applications such as injunctions and trial and acts for a range of clients including major infrastructure providers, government bodies, commercial investors, lenders and private individuals. Zoë has also trained as an arbitrator.
