20 October 2022

We are delighted to announce that a number of members of Chambers have been ranked in Chambers and Partners 2023.

“187 Chambers is a substantial set that handles large-scale fraud, general crime and regulatory law. The serious crime practice covers murder, robbery, drugs and sex cases, among a host of others. Significant homicide cases include gang-related killings, baby-shaking cases and historic murders. An example of the high-profile work on which counsel are instructed is R v Carroll, whereby the 16-year-old defendant was on trial for murdering 40-year-old suspected paedophile Darren Kelly, who had been lured into meeting an underage girl online. Sources praise this set for its “vast experience in dealing with complex and sophisticated matters.”
