Chambers of the Year
London set 3 Verulam Buildings (3VB) impressed the judges with its drive to promote new talent and be flexible in the way it delivers its services. The set offers fixed and capped fees and is willing to deploy conditional fees. "Inspired and reassuringly commercial," is how one client described the fee structures offered by the set. It also has an express commitment to encourage the use of junior counsel where appropriate. 3VB has been regarded as a leader in banking litigation for many years. Unsurprisingly, its advocates have featured in a host of high-profile credit crunch-related cases, including BPI v Barclays, UBS v HSH Nordbank and UBS v Proton Bank. In all, six members of chambers were instructed in the bank charges litigation, which culminated in a Supreme Court hearing.
