Monckton Chambers houses ‘expert practitioners’ and ‘a number of exciting junior counsel to follow with interest’. It is ‘the set of choice for all issues surrounding competition, regulatory, state aid and procurement law’, but is also recognised for its expertise in public, environment and tax law. Chambers is praised as ‘a friendly and reliable set’; ‘despite the volume of work, counsel and clerks always make themselves available at short notice’. Senior clerk David Hockney stands out as someone who is ‘always ready to assist’, and ‘embraces the set’s modern outlook’. Ann Langford is the chambers director.
