7 Bedford Row takes on 199’s remaining silk

Seven Bedford Row has picked up 199 Strand’s last silk Peter Andrews QC in a coup for the set’s clinical negligence practice. Andrews joins 7 Bedford Row on 6 March, shortly after 199 closes its doors for good at the end of this month. He will be the mixed civil and criminal set’s eighteenth silk and its sixth civil QC. Andrews specialises in catastrophic and clinical injury litigation, including claims for major spinal-cord injury, severe brain damage and birth trauma. Fellow 199 member and clinical negligence practitioner Leslie Keegan has already made the move to 7 Bedford Row. Joanne Harris
