Professional Liability


St Philips boasts an impressive line-up of experts in professional liability work.

We recognise that clients who have already been let down by one professional need particular time and care. Equally we understand that claims can be very worrying to defendants and we provide clear advice and representation in the professional’s hour of need.

Each member of our team has significant experience of professional liability work. Some practise across the field while others have particular experience of certain classes of professional liability work.

The team includes no less than 12 senior barristers who come highly recommended by the legal press.

Chambers UK describes John Randall QC as a “‘standout silk’ renowned for his advocacy and, in particular, his formidable cross-examination style” while Avtar Khangure QC is a “tenacious advocate … popular both with his peers and the local judiciary.”

The “unflappable” Simon Clegg is “mentally sharp … and extremely commercial in his outlook.”

John Brennan is an “extremely good analytical lawyer [who] marries legal acumen with cautious common sense.”  Andrew Charman is “very clever” with a “knack for relating to clients” while James Morgan QC is “accessible, polished and meticulous in all he does.”

The “extremely impressive” Tony Verduyn is “not afraid to get his hands dirty”.

In suitable cases, members of the team are prepared to consider acting on a CFA or contingent fee basis. Whatever our decision, we will always try to provide a clear answer to funding issues as quickly as possible. If funding is going to be a problem then we recommend an early discussion with Justin Luckman or another member of our commercial clerking team.
