Erskine Chambers stands out for its considerable strength in litigation, and has an experienced silk bench capable of handling multi-jurisdictional disputes. Its barristers have a strong track record in the market, as evidenced by their representation of Carillion, a matter on which several members acted for the former finance director of Carillion Plc in directors’ disqualification proceedings. Instructing solicitors refer to Erskine as "always a go-to for any complex corporate matter."
Phil Reeves has recently taken over as senior clerk after many years working at another set in Lincoln's Inn. He runs a team of clerks that are "committed to providing a good service and they consistently facilitate access to barristers even at short notice."
"James is a go-to barrister for complex corporate disputes involving directors' duties."
"He is a very modern silk with a great legal brain."
"David fluently delivers compelling arguments in open court."
"He is a very strong advocate, who takes the court with him and always gives considered responses to questions."
