The Legal 500, 2017

Monckton Chambers has ‘breadth and depth across all levels from silks to junior barristers’. It has expertise across the public law and regulatory spectrum, but is singled out as ‘the place to go to for EU law and competition advice’, and clients praise chambers’ ability to communicate insights surrounding these ever-changing areas: for example, ‘the Brexit blog is excellent and showcases the knowledge and commercial awareness of the set’. On the support side, ‘the front of house is personal and friendly, yet professional’, and the clerks are ‘very, very attentive’. Senior clerk David Hockney is ‘first class’ and ‘always responsive’, and first junior John Keegan is ‘approachable and very easy to deal with’ – ‘nothing is too much trouble’.
