Legal 500 Recommendations 2016

Very pleased to announce that Chambers is now ranked band 2 in both Crime and Fraud. As well as maintaining its position as the highest ranked Crime set under Consumer Law.

The latest edition of the Legal 500 was published on 16th September 2016. Chambers and its members are recommended in six areas: Crime, Fraud, Business and regulatory crime, Consumer Law, Health and Safety, and Professional Discipline/Regulatory. Members and Chambers received the following recommendations:

5 Paper Buildings has been strengthening its profile in crime, fraud and regulatory work, with many members ‘rapidly becoming leaders’ in the latter two areas. For some, it is ‘in a different league’; not only are the silks and senior juniors ‘very strong’, but there is also ‘excellent talent at the below-ten-year call mark’. This set has ‘the most approachable, knowledgeable and professional clerking team’. Senior clerk Dale Jones is ‘undoubtedly the best out there’, and is ‘largely responsible for the success of the set’. ‘He is superb at putting forward candidates for particular jobs’ and ‘knows the clerking system backwards’. Graham Briggs is the first junior, having joined in 2015 from Doughty Street Chambers.
