“Kenworthy's Chambers represents claimants and defendants in personal injury cases, with a focus on high-value and catastrophic injury claims, mostly arising out of road traffic accidents. Practice head Margaret McDonald has niche expertise in costs litigation."
“The costs specialists undertake a full range of work, including points of dispute and costs hearings including appeals, technical arguments, and detailed and summary assessments. They undertake work at a national level and regularly appear in the SCCO.”
“Margaret McDonald’s preparation and thoroughness has to be a huge asset and strength in her achieving considerable success at costs hearings. She is very personable and always willing to assist on an ad hoc basis even if she is not directly instructed on a matter.”
“Benjamin Nolan QC is a leading barrister who prosecutes and defends complex high-profile cases.”
“I have absolute confidence in Nicola Jones's ability to get the right result with first-hand product knowledge. I love her robust approach in cross examining the opposition and it's always a pleasure to work with her."
Bilal Afsar, DAC Beachcroft
