Cloisters short-listed for ‘Barristers’ Chambers of the Year’ in Personal Injury Awards 2015


Cloisters is delighted to announce that it has been short-listed for the Eclipse Proclaim Personal Injury Awards 2015 for ‘Barristers’ Chambers of the Year’.

Chambers has had many notable successes in high value personal injury cases. One recent example is the case in which Cloisters’ barrister, William Latimer-Sayer, instructed by Shoosmiths LLP and led by Susan Rodway QC, acted for the claimant which saw the highest ever clinical negligence court award in history.

The child, James Robshaw in the case of James Robshaw (a child by his mother and litigation friend Suzanne Adams) v Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust suffered catastrophic injuries as a result of obstetric negligence. Liability was admitted and the High Court ruled that United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust must pay £14.5 million for his birth injuries after failing to carry out a Caesarean section on his mother and properly monitoring her during labour.
