What the directories say

We are top ranked in all main areas of law by the UK’s leading legal directories. Here’s what they say:

  • “For some, St John’s Chambers is ‘unquestionably the go-to set for private client litigation in the South West’, while others say it is ‘a must instruct for personal injury and clinical negligence’, as well as covering the gamut of other practice areas including commercial, construction, and property law. In recent chambers news, dual-qualified Ryan Morgan, formerly of Queen Square Chambers, joined the family and divorce team. The ‘excellent’ clerks are ‘always helpful and approachable, they are a main cog in the process of the great communication between instructing solicitor and barrister – they just get it’; chief executive Derek Jenkins heads the team that ‘makes the lives of instructing solicitors so much easier, making the set feel like an extension of the solicitors’ own departments and not a standalone body’. Practice managers Rob Bocock, Luke Hodgson, and Annette Bushell manage the commercial, family, and personal injury teams respectively.

  • “St John’s Chambers is “a standout chambers for chancery work.” The barristers are held in extremely high regard on the Western Circuit for both their traditional and commercial chancery expertise. The set is able to handle everything from complex property litigation and trusts disputes, to professional negligence claims. Members are frequently instructed in cases concerning valuable agricultural land. One source enthuses: ‘I cannot recommend the chambers and individual counsel enough. They are friendly, accessible and build a phenomenal rapport with instructing solicitors and the client. The language used in their advice is clear and understandable, which is welcomed and praised by clients.’ “
