What the directories say about our Serious Injury Barristers

Chambers UK 2019

“Kings Chambers retains its reputation as a strong set for personal injury work on the Northern Circuit. Its barristers are regularly called upon to represent both claimants and defendants, including major employers and public liability insurance companies. The last 12 months have seen the set also receiving instructions from several of the UK's top motor insurers. Members have a particular focus on cases involving serious brain and spinal injuries, as well as chronic pain and military claims. Instructing solicitors praise Kings as "an impressive set that will only go from strength to strength."”

Client service: 

"The clerking at the set is brilliant and it's a very slick operation. All the clerks are well organised and helpful."

"They are one of the best clerking teams I have come across in terms of the service they provide, but what really sets them apart is their willingness to build a relationship."
