Located opposite the Royal Courts of Justice in London and with annexes in Manchester, Abu Dhabi, New York and Dubai, Outer Temple boasts national and international reach. After an internal restructuring process dividing the chambers practices into two sector-based divisions, business and health, Outer Temple now has three heads of chambers. Andrew Spink QC is head of business; David Westcott QC is head of health while Michael Bowes QC directs the chambers governance. Meanwhile, Christine Kings is commercial director.

Consisting of 75 barristers, 17 of whom are QCs, Outer Temple is recognised as a leading personal injury and clinical negligence set while its banking and finance, pensions and employment practices are prominent in the business division.

Head of the health division, David Westcott QC, has brought many big cases to trial involving birth injury and paralysis from spinal injury, while Gerard McDermott QC and Christopher Wilson-Smith QC are both major barristers in the health practice. Nathan Tavares has gained recognition as a leading junior barrister, with an emphasis on catastrophic personal injury and clinical negligence.

Two of Outer Temple’s most senior silks practice in the set’s business division. Outer Temple’s head of division, Andrew Spink QC, focuses on commercial, financial services, pensions and professional negligence. Michael Bowes QC, the chambers’ head of governance, specialises in financial services cases, with particular interest in cartels and insider dealing, asset recovery and fraud.

Outer Temple has also welcomed the appointment of Keith Bryant QC, who took silk in 2013. He specialises in pensions and employment law.

In addition, Richard Hitchcock took silk in 2014. He specialises in pensions and financial services law.
