Please see below our 2019 Leagl 500 rankings

One of the foremost sets in travel law’, and with ‘a seemingly endless depth of well-trained, able juniors added every year’, the ‘standout’ 3 Hare Court also offers ‘quality and depth of experience’ in relation to commercial litigation, fraud and insolvency cases, and places ‘an extremely important emphasis on delivering client service’. Members ‘routinely feature in notable and important cases, breaking new ground and setting precedents’, and ‘conduct complex and heavyweight litigation’. The ‘superb’ clerks’ room is headed up by the ‘delightful’ and ‘charming’ senior clerk James Donovan, who ‘knows his barristers – their strengths and weaknesses – inside out’ and ‘is interested in building lasting working relationships rather than short-term profits’. Chambers ‘really seems to be going places’ under Donovan’s guidance, and he is ably assisted by ‘commendable’ first junior Toby Eales, whose service to solicitors ‘cannot be faulted’. Second juniors clerk Simon Hamilton ‘always happy to assist in tight corners’. Junior clerk Bradly Patterson is singled out for his professionalism and for his ‘work with the listing office’.
