The legal 500

The Legal 500 labels PSQB a ‘fantastic leading set’ after further successful rankings

The 2017 edition of The Legal 500 was released this morning, naming Park Square Barristers as a ‘fantastic leading set with unrivalled strength in depth on the North-Eastern circuit’.

This year’s edition has provided personal recommendations to a number of Counsel, ranging across a plethora of areas:

A total of 5 QCs have been listed in the “Leading silks” list and 34 barristers in the “Leading juniors” list.

PSQB’s ‘brilliant’ clerking team has also received recognition in all areas:

Senior managing clerk Richard Sadler leads the ‘brilliant’ clerking team, which includes senior civil clerk Francine Kirk (‘highly professional, helpful and approachable’), and regulatory and public law clerk Madeleine Gray (‘first class and an asset to chambers’). Key contacts also include senior criminal clerk Andrew Thornton and senior family clerk Claudine Cooper. Collectively, the team ‘understands the gravity of each case to the client and therefore ensures that the counsel selected match the requirements and personality’.
