1 Chancery Lane recruits seven-strong team


A seven-strong team of specialists is joining personal injury and motor insurance fraud chambers 1 Chancery Lane from 33 Bedford Row.

As part of 1 Chancery Lane’s focused expansion, Ian Stebbings, Richard Cherry, Simon Newman, Conor Kennedy, Richard McLean, Christopher Pask and Terence Wong will become members of chambers from 3 December. They will be joined by clerk Greg Piner.

Head of 1 Chancery Lane, Simon Readhead QC, said: “We are committed to demonstrating the highest levels of legal expertise across our core areas and to building on our already strong reputation, through the recruitment of the best and most ‘up-and-coming’ barristers.”

“The arrival of this team is an important step forward for 1 Chancery Lane—boosting our complex personal injury, motor fraud and medical law teams, in particular. We are delighted that such a strong, experienced team of barristers has decided to join 1 Chancery Lane and look forward not only to working with them but to developing both the team and our services to clients, yet further”.

Stebbings (pictured), speaking on behalf of those joining 1 Chancery Lane, said: “1 Chancery Lane has long held one of the strongest reputations at The Bar for its client care and relationships. [The chambers’] commitment to developing its civil work across areas such as personal injury, inquests, public authority, regulatory and medical law, combined with this, made the move an attractive option. We’re pleased be joining such a well-respected Set and look forward to playing an integral role in future growth and expansion.”
