Serjeants’ Inn Chambers welcomes Sebastian Naughton

23rd February 2015

We are pleased to announce that Sebastian Naughton (1999 call) has joined us as a new member of Chambers.

Sebastian specialises in clinical negligence. He represents both claimants and defendants: his work on behalf of an NHS Trust in a case concerning a venous thromboembolism causing death during surgery, and for a diabetic Claimant suffering serious complications as a result of a failure to diagnose and refer are both recent, illustrative examples of his practice.

In addition to medical expertise, he brings extensive experience in discrimination law and unfair and wrongful dismissal complaints which will enhance the Serjeants’ Inn Chambers employment practice. His appellate work includes acting for Tesco in the Court of Appeal in a case of alleged procedural irregularity by the ET and he also undertakes advisory work and ‘litigation prevention’ where appropriate.

Sebastian is recommended as a leading clinical negligence junior by Chambers & Partners, which describes him, among other plaudits, as “meticulous” and “concise”.  A member of the judiciary has also characterised him as “a decorous and skilful advocate who upholds the best traditions of the Bar”.

Angus Moon QC comments that “we are delighted to have recruited a barrister of Sebastian’s calibre to enhance our healthcare and employment teams. His arrival reflects our ongoing commitment to building the expertise and service we offer to our clients”.
