THE SET Based in Liverpool, Atlantic Chambers is a strong presence in employment law on the Northern Circuit. Although featuring a smaller practice group than its main competitors, it is nevertheless able to provide a full range of employment expertise.
The impressive Simon Gorton QC is another vastly experienced employment specialist at the set and "a real force to be reckoned with" on circuit. His "tactical approach to proceedings" and "formidable" advocacy style give him an edge. One commentator noted: "His polite cross-examination technique is deadly."
