No5 Barristers' Chambers - Excellence is at the heart of everything we do.
Background

Cancer

"Very knowledgeable, approachable and client-focused members."

Legal 500 2021

"The barristers are approachable and they will go the extra mile. They are extremely responsive and they are always looking to engage and seek feedback on how their service could be improved."

Chambers UK 2020

"A 'go-to set' with 'a huge selection of specialists'. The set is most notable for claimant work, however a number of members of chambers also have defendant practices as well."

Legal 500 2020

"I have always found No5 Chambers very easy to work with. I always receive a timely response to e-mails and instructions. Communication is clear and I never have a problem reaching the relevant barrister."

Chambers UK 2019

"The clerking is well organised and helpful - the Chambers compares very well and is my go-to set for clinical negligence."

Chambers UK 2019

"No5 Barristers Chambers is 'a very strong set', housing two separate groups for clinical negligence and personal injury matters with over 70 barristers across the teams."

Legal 500 2019

"A 'heavyweight' outfit which dominates the Midlands clinical negligence sector. The set boasts a bench of silks and juniors who offer expertise across the full range of clinical negligence cases."

Chambers UK 2018

Members of the group are experienced and routinely instructed in cases arising out of the misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis of cancer.

Counsel understands both the particular human sensitivities and the medical and legal technicalities of such cases, including the complex issues of causation that can frequently arise.

The group covers all cases arising out of the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, including colorectal cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, cervical cancer, lung cancer, ovarian cancer, skin cancer, pancreatic cancer and testicular cancer.
