9 Gough Chambers rankings in the Legal 500 2017



We are delighted to announce that, once again, we are ranked in the Legal 500.

9 Gough Chambers is ranked as a leading set for:

Personal Injury: ‘The leading personal injury set’, where the ‘professional and well-regarded’ members provide ‘consistent high-quality advice’. Although better known for its claimant work, the set also acts for defendants in high-value cases. Areas of expertise include catastrophic spinal injury, amputation, psychological damage and industrial disease claims.

Clinical Negligence: Though often better known for personal injury, 9 Gough Chambers has ‘tremendous strength and depth of experience’ in the clinical negligence space. The ‘impressive’ barristers are ‘professional and well regarded’ for their ‘consistent high-quality advice’.

Children law (including public and private law): ‘While not the largest family law team’, 9 Gough Chambers is ‘certainly extremely expert in public and private children law cases’. Members’ strengths span radicalisation, non-accidental injury, international placement and sexual abuse cases.

In addition, members of chambers are also ranked for Crime, Fraud, Health and Safety, Inquests and Inquiries and Police Law.
