Band 4

5 St Andrew's Hill is a well-regarded set equipped to handle all criminal cases including those relating to homicide, drugs and human trafficking. The set takes on matters involving serious sexual offences, including those pertaining to historic child abuse, gang-related assaults and rape. Members worked on R v John Oliver, the successful defence of one of four defendants alleged to have been involved in the country’s biggest ever domestic burglary, in which jewellery and cash worth in excess of £30 million were stolen from well-known individuals and celebrities in December 2019. Sources confirm: "All of those in the set can be relied upon to handle any case given to them."

Client service

"The clerking team is excellent."

Dave Scothern is chambers director, while Gary Norton is first junior clerk. The set regularly puts on webinars looking at topical legal topics such as EncroChat, modern slavery and the new sentencing provisions.
