The civil liability law team at 39 Essex Chambers comprises leading practitioners who are recognised for their expert advocacy and advice in all aspects of civil law. They have particular expertise in personal injury, clinical negligence, professional liability, product liability, health and safety, toxic torts and insurance issues.
The civil liability law team has substantial experience in arbitration and alternative dispute resolution, as well as in litigation before courts and domestic tribunals. A significant proportion of our work involves attending mediations and other types of settlement meetings to represent the interests of our clients. We are able to provide experienced mediators and a bespoke mediation service.
We can draw together teams of barristers who range from experienced silks to the more recently qualified barristers, to offer a comprehensive and cost-effective service, combining strong analytical, advisory and advocacy skills with pragmatism and approachability.
As one of the world-leading arbitration sets, and in direct response to the listing delays caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, 39 Essex Chambers are delighted to present an exciting fixed fee ADR package to assist in the resolution of small and medium sized civil claims.
We offer parties the choice of a binding arbitration scheme or an advisory adjudication scheme with experienced barristers from 39 Essex Chambers’ Civil Liability Team. Parties simply agree to subject their dispute (in whole or part) to one of the schemes, select a barrister from the 39 EC ADR panel and progress their case through the procedure set out in the scheme rules.
Please see here for further details on the ADR package and barrister team.
39 Essex Chambers is consistently rated by the main directories as one of the leading civil law chambers.
A recent winner of the Chambers & Partners Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence Set of the Year award, 39 Essex Chambers has been described as “housing a plethora of ‘outstanding yet approachable high-end practitioners’.”
