"A terrific range of counsel is available at this set, which in a little over 20 years has created a strong identity at the Bar." - Chambers & Partners
Civil practice teams at Doughty Street Chambers have always recognised that our key strength lies in our multi-disciplinary approach to casework. With such diverse expertise our barristers are uniquely placed to address the cross-over issues often interwoven within our cases.
Administrative and public law is at the heart of Doughty Street Chambers with more than 50 barristers of all levels of call practicing in this area.
Doughty Street Chambers is one of the most international sets in the UK.
Sources admire its “genuine commitment to civil liberties” and its “incredibly long history of doing human rights work.”
Barristers in this team have a wealth of experience in community care and health law as well as bringing cross-disciplinary expertise in discrimination, mental health, mental capacity, immigration, prisons, education, housing, freedom of information, social security, EU and human rights law.
This enables us to handle the enormous range of legal disputes that arise in relation to the provision of community care or health services including: assessments of needs; provision of suitable services; direct payments or individual budgets; age assessments; eligibility for care services generally, whether of adults, asylum-seekers and migrants, children leaving care or prisoners; provision of healthcare services and essential medication (such as the Herceptin litigation); closure or reorganisation of services (day centres, residential homes or hospital provision); charging for services; and disputes between public authorities as to their respective responsibilities to provide community care or healthcare services.
We field barristers at all call bands and we advise and appear at all levels of the courts and tribunals, including in judicial reviews and the Court of Protection, as well as in the European Court of Human Rights. We regularly make emergency applications for interim relief in the Administrative Court. We provide advisory services and assist in mediations and other forms of dispute resolution including complaints processes, and our team includes trained mediators. We can draw on the resources of other specialist teams within Chambers as necessary: Housing and Social Welfare, Mental Health, Court of Protection, Clinical Negligence, Immigration, Prisons and Public Law.
