The areas of work in which we have particular expertise, experience and excellence.
From silk to junior, the specialist Court of Protection Team at 9 Gough Chambers contains market leaders in Personal Injury, Clinical Negligence and Public/Family law. This allows our barristers to give clients and solicitors an unrivalled breadth of expertise in this dynamic and sensitive area of work. We have no less than 20 barristers listed in the legal directories.
Drawing on strengths and expertise from each individual practice area, the barristers in our Court of Protection Team provide a unique perspective to issues relating to the welfare and decision making for those that are incapable of doing so themselves. Most notably our team consists of barristers with vast experience in acting for those disabled and of reduced mental capacity arising out of injury and clinical negligence. With our Head of Chambers Andrew Ritchie QC chairing the predominant annual ‘Deputy Day’ Conference run by Frenkel Topping, Chambers’ profile in this work continues to be high.
Our barristers pride themselves on offering incisive advice whilst retaining a human touch, accepting instruction from solicitors, Deputies and the Official Solicitor in all matters concerning the Court of Protection.
