1 Chancery Lane Top Ranked in Chambers UK Bar 2021



“A first class set of Chambers”

We’re delighted that 1 Chancery Lane is ranked across six of our practice areas in the newly released Chambers UK Bar – clinical negligence, motor insurance fraud, personal injury, police law, real estate litigation and travel law.

Our clinical negligence team is described by interviewees as “a very powerful set in the clinical negligence field.” Members have experience of acting for a wide range of clients, including several medical defence organisations and private individuals, in high-value and complex claims. Areas of expertise for the team include catastrophic birth injuries, psychiatric illness and surgical negligence claims. The set’s barristers are highly regarded for their handling of both individual and multiparty actions.

Of our personal injury team, Chambers says: 1 Chancery Lane is a well-regarded set, noted for its expert representation of both claimants and defendants in a wide range of personal injury matters. The team regularly undertakes work relating to catastrophic injuries and fatal accidents, and the set houses considerable strength in cases with an international element. Members are well versed in complex employers’, occupiers’ and public liability claims, and are routinely instructed in occupational stress, workplace bullying and industrial disease matters.

Our police law team is described as a strong set for police defence representation. The barristers can be relied upon to apply their deep knowledge of tort and human rights law, and police operations, wherever serious wrongdoing is alleged by members of the public.

Of our top ranked travel law team Chambers says: 1 Chancery Lane retains its reputation as one of the leading chambers for cross-border personal injury work. The set houses a strong group of barristers who are experienced in the handling of holiday sickness actions and complex catastrophic injury and fatal claims arising from foreign RTAs, maritime accidents and aircraft incidents. Members are also highly regarded for their expertise in jurisdiction and applicable law disputes, and are regularly called upon to act in claims under the Athens and Montreal Conventions.

In Motor Insurance Fraud Simon Trigger is praised for being “particularly good at drafting and displays strength at trials and hearings.” He is joined by Ella Davis who is newly ranked as Up and Coming, with Chambers saying: “She is very passionate, approachable and thorough, and works to create excellent relationships with solicitors and lay clients… she goes above and beyond to achieve outstanding results.”

In Real Estate Litigation Zachary Bredemear is recognised as being “a very knowledgeable lawyer with lots of expertise.” He is “pragmatic, accessible and knowledgeable.”

Our clerking team is also recognised: “The clerks are always very helpful and prompt in dealing with enquiries.” “It’s a very professional set of chambers, with a really efficient clerking team.” They are “always very willing to assist whenever possible and deal with queries and requests very promptly and efficiently.”
