Chambers welcomes Christopher Hough and Hannah Hinton

7th May 2020

We’re delighted to announce the arrival of two new barristers in recent weeks, Christopher Hough and Hannah Hinton, as part of our strategy to extend our service for clients.

Chris (1981 Call) joins our award winning clinical negligence team, building on the senior expertise already available to clients in this field. Ranked as a leading practitioner by both legal directories, he represents claimants and has a vast experience of all types of cases: cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury in children and adults, spinal cord injury, brachial plexus injury, blindness, amputations and Fatal Accident Act cases. Chris also deals with clinical negligence related solicitor negligence and employment and discrimination cases. Clients cited by the directories describe him as “ingenious…able to formulate novel solutions to complex problems” with a “very good bedside manner with the clients”.

Hannah (2008 Call), who has appeared in 33 reported cases in the last three years with a Supreme Court case currently in the pipeline, strengthens our business and specialist crime team in particular. Specialising in public law in extradition, cross-border financial crime, fraud, police law, unlawful detention claims and complex disciplinary misconduct cases, she represents individuals, governments and other public bodies in cases involving technical arguments as well as sensitive health, capacity and human rights issues and judicial review. She is a member of the Attorney General’s civil panel. She is ranked as a leading junior by the directories, and has been commended in the editorial as “fearless and quick on her feet” with a “friendly approach” .

This will further enhance the service we are able to provide to you, significantly consolidating our expertise in all our core fields.
