Background

Spinal Injury

"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."

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