Chambers' Personal Injury Team Legal 500 Rankings 2024

Chambers is pleased to announce that 15 members have been ranked in the latest Legal 500 publication. The Team received high praise as an 'excellent chambers' with 'a great variety of counsel'.

"Its members are highly skilled in cases involving brain injury, amputation, and spinal cord trauma, in addition to more specialist areas, such as industrial disease, travel and international personal injury, and insurance fraud claims. Elizabeth Murray has a niche focus on litigation involving the Animals Act 1971; she successfully represented a company which owned a horse that electrocuted itself, causing the rider to fall off and sustain injuries. Michael O’Neill practices exclusively in large loss personal injury work, acting for both claimants and defendants, while Zoë Thompson primarily represents defendants, especially in cases with issues of fundamental dishonesty or disputes between medical experts. James Hurd handles complex psychiatric injury claims and matters involving brain injuries, and Joseph Mulderig is skilled in chronic pain mandates. Matthew Snarr handles catastrophic injury claims, and represented a builder who became paralysed from the waist down after falling through a barn roof."

The Personal Injury clerks were also singled out for their skills:

'From the senior clerk, Tony Morrissey, to the personal injury team of 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 service from the clerks at 9 St John Street is outstanding. They respond quickly, provide updates on matters promptly, and are always available to assist with any queries. Phillip Spencer is an exemplary clerk.'

'The clerks are amazing – very friendly and approachable, prompt in their response, and no query is too small! Joe Gibson and Phillip Spencer work so hard and respond quickly to requests.'
