Other leaders identified were Julie Say, Head of Clinical Negligence who they describe as providing ‘outstanding clarity of instructions in complex cases’.
In the Crime team, Nigel Richardson, their Head was described as ‘Technically brilliant’ and ‘arguably the leading solicitor for sexual offences work’. His colleagues Raj Chada, Daniel Godden, Ruth Harris and Samira Noor-Khan were all recognised too.

The Civil Liberties and Human Rights team is described as providing ‘a superb level of service’ and is ‘one of the best around’. The team’s co-heads Jocelyn Cockburn is singled-out as having an ‘incisive and tactical mind’ and Susie Labinjoh as ‘highly conscientious’.
