"A set that rises in this year's table, thanks to a growing reputation in the London market for the quality and breadth of its clinical negligence work. The barristers provide decades of combined experience in representing claimants and defendants in high-value, challenging medical negligence cases. Clients also appreciate the clerking at the set: 'The clerks are great here - friendly and reliable. Most importantly, I trust what they tell me. There have been instances where they haven't had anyone suitable for a particular type of case, and they've rather said that than suggest someone who's not quite right. That maintains a position of trust.'"
