The areas of work in which we have particular expertise, experience and excellence.
News | Wed 29th Nov, 2017
Simon Readhead QC follows John Ross QC, who held the role for more than ten years. On taking up the role, on Monday 9th October 2017, Simon said:
“Over the past ten years my predecessor, John Ross Q.C., has led 1 Chancery Lane to its current position as a pre-eminent set with specialist expertise across core areas of complex personal injury, public authority liability, travel and cross border claims, medical law, property, chancery and commercial law and professional liability.
“John’s own professional reputation together with the clear leadership which he has provided has helped to position 1 Chancery Lane as one of the most highly regarded sets in these fields.
“We have an exceptional team of members of chambers, clerks and support staff all of whom contribute towards the specialisation, excellence and service we offer.
“However, the Bar is changing. Legal excellence on its own is no longer sufficient. Sets committed to providing the highest standards of professional service and expertise must also demonstrate good strategic governance, organisational rigour and a clear focus on meeting changing client needs.
“In taking over from John as Head of Chambers I look forward to working with members of chambers and our excellent clerks and support staff in building on what John has achieved with the aim of further strengthening the reputation of I Chancery Lane as a national leader.”
