Chambers UK 2019:
A prominent set consisting of dynamic barristers who handle high-stakes clinical negligence cases for both claimants and defendants. Its barristers have tried-and-tested expertise in issues of surgical negligence, misdiagnosis and failures in post-operative care, to name a few. The lawyers frequently act in cases regarding birth damage, including high-value cerebral palsy claims. They also maintain busy practices in cases dealing with adult injury, such as serious spinal and neurological conditions leading to severe disability. Members also boast considerable talent in issues relating to deficient psychiatric care. Instructing solicitors draw attention to the chambers' reliable bench strength at all levels of seniority, which they say makes the set a top choice for all varieties of clinical negligence work.
"The clerks are really willing and flexible and they have a sensible approach to getting the job done - they have gone above and beyond for me at times."
"They are reliable and have excellent organisation which is forward-thinking."
Solicitors say that chief clerk Stephen Loxton "has to be the most helpful clerk in Manchester."
