Four barristers from the soon to dissolve 6 Pump Court (Kieran Coonan QC), have joined Outer Temple Chambers. The arrivals bring the number of tenants at Outer Temple to 60 – up from 32 just 18 months ago. Kieran Coonan QC, 6 Pump Court's head, announced a week ago that his chambers, one of the bar’s foremost clinical negligence sets, will dissolve on January 17, 2005. Coonan cited the reasons for the dissolution as being cuts in fees for publicly- funded work, the impact of the Clementi Review, and difficulties around finding new accommodation. Coonan will join Robert Seabrooke QC’s One Crown Office Row. The barristers who have joined Outer Temple are medical negligence specialists David Morris, Charles Foster, and Anthony Haycroft, and medical crime barrister Alan Jenkins. The 6 Pump Court referred to in this story is not the chambers of Stephen Hockman QC, which bears the same name.
