Chambers is happy to announce that Neil Block QC will be joining Stephen Tromans QC as Joint Head of Chambers. Neil Block QC will be taking over the position vacated by Robert Jay QC on his appointment to the High Court Bench on the 4th June.

Neil Block QC was called to the bar in 1980 and took silk in 2002. Neil is one of the few current practitioners who can properly claim to be a specialist in a number of areas of practice ranging from personal injury and clinical negligence to commercial and insurance. Neil is consistently noted in the legal directories for his work in Insurance and Reinsurance, Professional Negligence, Clinical Negligence, Personal Injury, and Product Liability. These include recommendations over many years in Chambers & Partners, the Legal 500 and Legal Experts. He was picked as one of Chambers & Partners 2012 ‘Star Individuals’ of Personal Injury Law and rated in Band 1 for Clinical Negligence.

Chambers would like to both thank Robert Jay QC for all of his work as Joint Head of Chambers and wish Neil Block QC well in his new role.
