We are pleased to announce that Coram Chambers has maintained its Legal 500 ranking as a leading set in Children Law (including Public and Private law). It is quoted as one of the ‘strongest sets in London’, with ‘a long history of excellence’.
Congratulations to our individually ranked barristers Mark Twomey QC, Martha Cover, Jane Drew, Ramanjit Kang and Victoria Roberts – all who were ranked in Children Law (Public and Private), Mike Horton on his ranking in Family Law (including divorce and remedy), and Nicholas O’Brien, Marcia Hyde and Richard O’Sullivan, who were ranked in the South-eastern Circuit for Family and Children Law.
Below are comments from our rankings:
Mark Twomey QC is a leading silk – “succinctly and persuasively argues a case like no-one else.”
Martha Cover, tier 1 – “A fierce champion of children’s rights.”
Jane Drew, tier 3 – “Very experienced in international adoption cases.”
Michael Horton, tier4 – “His preparation is of the highest order.”
Ramanjit Kang, tier 4 – “She exquisitely balances tenacity with courtesy.”
Victoria Roberts, tier 4 – “she is prepared for anything.”
Nick O’Brien – “A very knowledgeable advocate.’
Marcia Hyde – ‘Highly experienced in children law cases involving sexual abuse and non-accidental injuries.’
Richard O’Sullivan – “Noted for his expertise in care cases.’
Coram is quoted as having ‘a long history of excellence’ and our members have ‘a high level of expertise’, which solicitors find invaluable in extremely complex cases, yet they also ‘strike the right balance between being technical and having good client care’.
Our ‘reliable’ clerks are ‘excellent at keeping in touch with solicitors, maintaining a high level of communication on a consistent basis and they can also manage any sensitive issues discreetly’. First juniors George Mo (‘an outstanding clerk, he has a great sense of humour which really helps in the job he has to do’) and David Sadler (‘helpful, friendly and approachable’) are both highly regarded. Also of note is fees clerk Natalie Gilesi, who is ‘very knowledgeable and responsive’. The ‘excellent’ Sam Carter, previously of 12 King’s Bench Walk, has joined to take over the vacant senior clerk position.
