Commercial Dispute Resolution
"Simon Goldberg of Trinity Chambers is praised by market sources for the depth and breadth of his commercial disputes expertise, which includes professional negligence, insolvency, directors' duties and shareholder disputes. Michelle Temple of Trinity Chambers impresses peers with an "intelligent and tenacious approach," and is felt to be "no pushover" when dealing with commercial disputes. She is highly regarded for her chancery disputes practice."
"Toby Hedworth QC heads Trinity Chambers and is renowned in the Tyneside area for general crime and regulatory work. He led on the prosecution of Paul Robinson and Russell Gladstone in a case alleging murder outside a New Year's party. His set is also home to Christopher Knox, who has a varied practice that includes family and regulatory matters, as well as serious crime cases. He prosecuted R v Borg and Blackwell, an affray case connected with a later shooting."
"Jane Callan of Trinity Chambers is "highly experienced and good on her feet." She acts for a mixed bag of respondents and claimants, and has a focus on discrimination and equal pay cases. "Fierce cross-examiner" Simon Goldberg is at the same set. He "packs a punch in the tribunal room." Also here, Jamie Morgan is commended for his equal pay work. He recently appeared before the Employment Tribunal in Hovell v Ashford & St. Peters Hospital NHS Trust. A "star in the making," Richard Stubbs shares a set with Goldberg and has a "spot-on sense of judgement" and a "highly measured approach" that "gets results," say sources."
"Trinity Chambers has a strong stable of barristers capable of handling all aspects of family law. These include Christopher Knox, who wins particular praise for his skilful cross-examination. Sources also comment that he is "good with accounts and finances and takes a no-nonsense approach." He concentrates on high-value financial provision disputes, as does his colleague James Richardson, who is greatly appreciated for his "immaculate preparation and methodical approach." The extremely popular Timothy Spain represents high net worth individuals in matrimonial finance disputes with children law issues. He is acclaimed for his "excellent bedside manner and preparation." Primarily focusing on care proceedings, where he represents a variety of local authorities, Nicholas Stonor is considered a "safe pair of hands" by his peers. Lesley McKenzie offers the full range of family law expertise to her instructing solicitors. Child protection cases are just one aspect of her "highly efficient" practice. Nicola Shaw has recently moved to Trinity Chambers ... She maintains a strong reputation for her family practice and is known as a "pragmatic lawyer who advances her clients' cases well without taking up superfluous points.""
