Chancery and Commercial 
  
9 St John Street is home to a number of seasoned practitioners who cover a wide range of commercial and traditional chancery work both on the Northern Circuit and further afield. The set offers in-depth expertise in company law, partnership disputes, and contentious probate and trust cases. 
Client service: "The clerking team is headed by Tony Morrissey. The clerks are efficient and flexible and it is genuinely a real pleasure to work with them." 
  
Employment 
  
THE SET The 9 St John Street employment law team advises on work ranging from unfair dismissal and TUPE cases to industrial relations and restraint of trade, and also offers document drafting and employment law training services. Members are instructed both by individual claimants and unions and also by public and private organisations. In recent months, individuals from this set have been instructed on the case of 120 Police Officers v Devon & Cornwall Police, Nottinghamshire Police, North Wales Police, South Wales Police and West Midlands Police, where claims of age discrimination were successfully brought by officers who were forcibly retired. 
Client service: "The clerking is pretty responsive and we can always have a frank discussion about fees, so that everyone knows where they stand." The clerking team is led by senior clerk Tony Morrissey 
  
  
Personal Injury 
  
St John Street is a well-regarded set with a broad range of experience in representing both claimants and defendants in complex and serious personal injury cases, including industrial disease and catastrophic injury claims. One source enthuses that "it is a very strong set with a long history; it is well led and clerked, with a strong team boasting a number of different skill sets." 
Client service: "The clerks are very accommodating and put you with the right person. They go out of their way to assist you." "Senior clerk Tony Morrissey is excellent, very accommodating and good at maintaining a close working relationship."
