Devereux Chambers

About The Set

A multi-specialist set, Devereux does some of the most interesting and varied work you'll find at the bar. Recent cases include Cox v Ministry of Justice, in which the Supreme Court decided on the vicarious liability of prisoners, P v Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis, which saw the Court of Appeal confirm immunity of the Police Misconduct Panel, and various high value serious injury claims reported widely in the press.

Devereux's roster of 10 QCs and 40 juniors specialise in, among other areas, commercial litigation, insurance, reinsurance, professional negligence, IT and telecoms, tax, employment, clinical negligence and personal injury. One of its most high profile members, the barrister and blogger Jolyon Maugham QC, is currently fronting the main legal challenge to prevent the invoking of Article 50 without the approval of parliament.
