Serjeants’ Inn Chambers

About The Set

Serjeants’ Inn Chambers — which takes its name from the now destroyed inn of the Serjeants-at-Law, an ancient and superior order of barristers — is most famous for its award-winning clinical negligence practice, but also excels in police law, public law, professional discipline, inquests and inquiries and court of protection work. Its cases often involve important political, social and ethical issues.

Serjeants’ Inn Chambers was recently awarded ‘Chambers of the Year’ at the Halsbury Legal Awards 2015, Chambers & Partners Bar Awards and Modern Law Awards. It also won ‘Professional Discipline Set of the Year’ (Chambers and Partners Bar Awards) and ‘Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury Set of the Year’ (Legal 500 Awards). In addition, the set won three of the six awards available to the Bar at The Lawyer Awards 2015, including Bridget Dolan as ‘Barrister of the Year’, and was the only set of chambers to be shortlisted for the Lawyer’s Business Leadership Awards (‘Leadership Team of the Year’). Further, Serjeants’ Inn was the only set to be shortlisted by the Financial Times, which featured it as “stand-out” in its Innovative Lawyers Report 2015.

Finally, Serjeants’ Inn was one of five finalists for the ‘Client Service Set of the Year’ at the Chambers & Partners Bar Awards 2015 and was highly acclaimed for ‘Best Client Service Initiative’ at the Modern Law Awards as well as the Legal Week Innovation Awards this year.
