Personal injury

The No5 Chambers personal injury group has over 60 members, includes four silks and works with its own team of highly experienced clerks.

The group prides itself on strength in depth and the consistently high level of service it offers to solicitors acting for both claimants and defendants throughout the country.

We cover a complete range of work, from modest claims through to catastrophic injury and multi-party litigation, and attract favourable directory reviews year after year.

‘The set is rapidly growing its expertise in both clinical negligence and personal injury work, and is increasingly recognised as a destination for claimants […] ‘No5 Chambers is one of the leading sets in Birmingham and, as such, it is no surprise to find it so prominent in the personal injury market.’ Chambers & Partners 2013

‘No5 Chambers retains its “already excellent reputation”.’ Legal 500 2012 (PI & Clin Neg)

‘No5 Chambers is a giant in the Midlands personal injury market and home to ‘talented and commercially adept” silks and senior junior barristers. With further resources in Bristol and London, the set advises claimants on the broadest range of complex PI cases and is admired for its handling of group litigation, EL/PL and RTA cases. The clerks attract considerable praise for their “approachability and efficiency.”’ — Chambers and Partners 2012

‘No5 Chambers is widely regarded as ”a first-class set of chambers that has excellent facilities.” Both barristers and staff come highly recommended, with the barristers being described as some of the best on the circuit and the clerks being hailed as “efficient and very helpful”.’ — Chambers and Partners 2011 

‘No5 Chambers, “an extremely professional set with a host of experienced barristers”, is felt to be amongst a select group of regional chambers that present “a real challenge to the London Bar for personal injury work.” In its ranks it has many highly respected personal injury silks.’ — Chambers and Partners 2010

‘Attracts widespread praise from solicitors who appreciate the strength and high calibre of its barristers from the most senior silks right down to the less-experienced but extremely talented juniors.’ — Chambers and Partners 2009
