Chambers is ranked as a leading Clinical Negligence set in both Chambers UK and Legal 500. Praised for its “depth of knowledge in clinical negligence” Chambers houses practitioners recognized in the directories and by the industry at large as leaders in the field.

One of the largest teams in Chambers, the Clinical Negligence team boasts 6 silks and over 40 juniors. The team has experience in the full range of clinical negligence from high value birth injury claims and cases arising out of spinal surgery, leading to severe disability and cases involving late to cases arising out of dental treatment or failed cosmetic surgery. Members of Chambers have been involved in some of the highest value claims in recent years and are often instructed in ground breaking appeals.

Our team frequently lectures in this area and have produced a third edition of ‘Clinical Negligence Claims, a Practical Guide’ which was warmly received by many practitioners in this field.

We pride ourselves on approachability and flexibility, whilst maintaining the very highest standards of client care and an unerring ability to get to the nub of any case – no matter how complex. 9 Gough Chambers offers sensitive, client focussed advice with a view to achieving the best possible result in every case. We offer invaluable assistance at any stage of the claim, whether it is initial advice, advocacy in the higher courts or a negotiated or mediated settlement.

Our barristers are happy to provide training to solicitors on recent developments as well as specifically requested topics.

If you are interested in receiving training in this area please contact the clerks.
