"The barristers are reliable specialists in their field who provide high quality legal advice and representation. They also understand their clients."

Chambers & Partners

The work we do:

COVID-19 is having a profound effect on the healthcare sector and raises numerous legal issues. Please see our dedicated COVID-19 hub for our barristers’ latest commentary and articles. For further information on COVID-19 or healthcare issues, please contact our clerks on 0207 269 0300.

We have a long-standing reputation in the healthcare sector which makes us a popular choice for claimants and respondents/defendants in all health-related issues. Our barristers have appeared in many of the leading healthcare cases and we are regularly involved in cases on both sides.

Because of our experience, we understand the challenges faced by health professionals, healthcare providers and those receiving healthcare. We understand what is happening in the sector and how changes affect all parties, be they budget pressures, policy decisions, patient demands or regulatory changes. We also have a wealth of knowledge in relevant fields including employment and discrimination, clinical negligence, professional discipline, personal injury, and inquests and inquiries.

  • Employment advice and representation in internal proceedings, in the High Court and in Employment Tribunals
