7BR is delighted to announce that we are again ranked as a leading set in the 2021 edition of Chambers and Partners.

Named as a “highly regarded set in the clinical negligence market” 7BR “houses considerable strength in the handling of fatal claims, and its barristers are regularly called upon to appear at inquests.” Instructing solicitors describe us as “standout in the field of clinical negligence” and note that “the barristers working there are at the cutting edge of being able to handle complex medical negligence claims in terms of liability and quantum.”

We are noted for our “impressive representation of claimants in the full range of product liability cases” and instructing solicitors praise 7BR as “the claimant set of choice in the market.”

Members are experienced in the handling of complex and high-profile cases involving murder, sexual offences, drug trafficking, terrorism and serious violent crimes. The team is also well versed in cyber-crime matters, including cases involving cryptocurrency. The set’s barristers act for both the prosecution and the defence.”
