Silk appointments for Claire Watson and Sophia Roper

22nd December 2021

We’re delighted to announce the forthcoming appointment of Claire Watson and Sophia Roper as Queen’s Counsel.

Claire specialises in clinical negligence, professional discipline and regulatory law, police law, inquests and related public law matters. Clients cited by the directories describe her as “consistently brilliant, client-focused with a nuanced approach”.

Sophia is a specialist public lawyer, with a core practice in medical treatment and welfare cases in the Court of Protection, and inquest work focusing on mental health. She is noted by the directories as being “a class act: wise, clever and a formidable advocate”.

Congratulations to Sophia and Claire and many thanks to all those who participated in the application process as referees. Since 2016 our silk team has increased from 9 to 24 (including 7 women) and we have recruited 28 new tenants, enabling us to extend and diversify the service we provide to our clients.
