About

This content is provided by Hardwicke.

Heads of Chambers: PJ Kirby QC, Brie Stevens-Hoare QC;

Chief Executive: Amanda Illing

Languages: French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Gujerati and Chinese.

Hardwicke is one of the most innovative and modern sets at the Bar. Its members cover all aspects of commercial dispute resolution (including arbitration, adjudication, expert determination and early neutral evaluation), construction and engineering, insolvency and restructuring, insurance, personal injury and clinical negligence, private client, professional liability and property.

Known for its friendly atmosphere and progressive outlook, it is run as a commercial business with a strong focus on client service. Its business culture is reinforced by an active CSR and equality and diversity programme.

Hardwicke has many years’ experience advising and acting for attorneys and clients world-wide and much of our work is international in character. We regularly handle cross-border litigation and matters in international arbitration proceedings before off shore first instance and appellate Courts, as well as Privy Council appeals. Members also act as experts in English law in foreign proceedings.

Our barristers have particular experience of working in (and in disputes related to) mainland Europe (one of our members is resident in Luxembourg), the Channel Islands, the Middle East (including the Gulf States), the US, Latin America, the Caribbean and Australasia. Several of our members are called to the Bar in other jurisdictions and many more gain ad hoc admission to the Bars of other jurisdictions if required for a particular case. A number of members speak foreign languages including French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese and Gujarati.

We accept instructions from the UK and international law firms’ UK offices, but also directly from foreign law firms and, where appropriate, clients.

Members of chambers are involved in a number of key publications including Construction All Risks Insurance; Construction Professional Indemnity Insurance, Edisclosure – Law & Practice, Tolley’s Insolvency Law, Insurance Broking Practice & the Law, Drafting Trusts & Will Trusts and Risk & Negligence in Property Transactions.
