Chambers' Clinical Negligence Team ranked highly in Legal 500

The Clinical Negligence Team in Chambers has had three members ranked by the 2024 Legal 500. Individual members have received high praise for their work in this area.

"9 St John Street has a ‘wide range of skilled counsel’ in the clinical negligence team, which is led by Kirsty McKinlay; she is highly adept at handling cases with complex causation arguments, and matters where there is a suggestion of exaggeration of injuries. Joseph Mulderig mainly represents claimants, but he also represents defendants from the private medical sector. His instructions usually involve large loss and complex medical issues. Julie-Anne Luck is another notable name in the team."

The clerking team has also been commended:

'The clerks are a pleasure to work with, and Phillip Spencer can always be relied upon.'

'From Tony Morrissey to Joe Gibson and Phillip Spencer, they are always on hand and will go out of their way to assist, even in difficult cases and with last-minute instructions.'

'The clerks, particularly Phillip Spencer and Joe Gibson, are always very helpful, professional, and approachable. They deal with queries quickly.'
