39 Essex Chambers provides expert advocacy and advice in all aspects of personal injury, clinical negligence and healthcare. We provide a service that includes inquests, inquiries, criminal and regulatory proceedings and advice on insurance issues.
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.
A significant proportion of our work involves attending mediations and other types of settlement meetings to represent the interests of our clients. 39 Essex Chambers is able to provide experienced mediators and a bespoke mediation service.
The personal injury team represents and advises injured or aggrieved private claimants and defendants, multinational companies (both large and small), insurers and defence organisations, the NHSLA and other government bodies.
Our expertise is complemented by expertise in all aspects of insurance, commercial, construction, regulatory and public law (including community care, mental health and capacity, and human rights).
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.
We are consistently rated by the main directories as one of the leading personal injury and clinical negligence chambers.
Chambers & Partners voted us the Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence Set of the Year 2012, and has described 39 Essex Street as “a powerhouse in the area of Personal Injury.”
Chambers were named ‘Chambers of the Year’ at The Eclipse Proclaim Personal Injury Awards 2017.
