9 Gough Chambers consistently attracts praise from the major legal directories across a broad range of its practice areas.
9 Gough Chambers is a band 1 set for personal injury in Chambers & Partners , with 6 silks and 8 juniors ranked. Chambers & Partners writes “This top-tier personal injury set attracts predominantly claimant instructions and regularly tackles catastrophic injury claims, including brain, spinal and amputation cases. It also has members who are recognised for their ability to manage industrial disease claims effectively.”
Legal 500 ranks 9 Gough Chambers for Personal Injury, Clinical Negligence, Children Law, Crime, Fraud, Professional Discipline and Regulatory Law. They write “9 Gough Chambers is a common law set, with noteworthy expertise in personal injury, clinical negligence, fraud and serious crime.”
Our staff receive praise from both directories. Chambers UK say: “No call ever goes unanswered and requests for costs budgeting data are invariably dealt with in full, within an hour.” Legal 500 note that “‘the clerking is the best in the business, as is Michael Goodridge‘ (director of business development: civil and crime), who has ‘a fantastic understanding of the commercial matrix that laws firms are working to nowadays’.”
9 Gough Chambers remains the only APIL Accredited Chambers in the country and we work closely with APIL with 5 members of the team being elected co-ordinators or secretaries of various APIL special interest groups covering brain injury, procedure, industrial disease and damages.
“I would like to thank all at 9 Gough Chambers for the service I have received over the last 20+ years. Everyone within chambers, from the juniors (most recently Jake Richards), through to Jacob Levy QC and Andrew Ritchie QC, have over the years provided an excellent service and have never let me down.
A special mention for Michael Goodridge (Director of Clerking) who has been nothing short of superb. He has always found the right person for the right job, as well as late cover for last-minute hearings, and made sure I felt the fee was fair, and that value was always added. His cool, calm telephone manner made nothing seem too much to ask, and that no hurdle could not be overcome. He is truly a credit to Chambers’. Solicitor (Partner)
