Kate Miller – Tier 1 – ‘Kate is a fabulous barrister with a pragmatic approach. She advises in a jargon-free manner and in a way that clients can easily understand.’

Personal Injury

Leading Juniors:

Shona Harvey

John Ratledge – ‘John’s strengths lie in his ability to assimilate a large quantity of information and evidence to get to the core issues in a very short period. He is very supportive of witnesses and experts during the conference but knows exactly when and how hard to push them on their evidence to get what is required out of them. He is very impressive when it comes to trial advocacy and a skilled and formidable advocate, especially in cross-examination.’
