"Offers a deep bench of personal injury specialists with expertise across the practice area. Its industrial capabilities are particularly impressive, with one source noting: 'There are a number there who do a lot of disease work at a very high level.'" Chambers UK 2014, Leading Set for Personal Injury
"Crown Office Chambers has succeeded in forming a personal injury team that is impressive both in size and quality. As one fellow barrister noted: 'There is a remarkable concentration of expertise in my field there.' The group is most clearly associated with defendant work on behalf of major insurers, but it also has a significant claimant practice, and this breadth of personal injury coverage is another core strength of the set: 'They understand both sides of these cases, and are able to advise accordingly.' Particularly impressive is the team's highly regarded niche expertise in industrial disease cases. Other key areas of focus are complex psychiatric cases, and matters relating to fatal injuries and serious brain and spinal injuries."

They are supported by a team of clerks that 'works magic to get you the right barrister within the right timeframe.'"
