5 Essex Chambers ranked as a tier 1 set for inquests and inquiries and police law in The Legal 500, 2020 directory.

30 September 2019

Chambers goes from strength to strength, being ranked as a tier 1 set in both inquests and inquiries and police law. 40% of our team are now leading individuals within Legal 500 with Claire Palmer and Francesca Whitelaw being ranked for the first time.

Legal 500 said of our team “5 Essex Chambers are ‘leaders in the field’, have ‘fearsome intellects’, and are ‘formidable opponents, yet very approachable and pleasant to work with’

“The quality of work members produce, and at the very sensible rates they charge, make them stand out for value from other commercial/police chambers ”
