Lord Faulks QC
Year Of Call: 1973
Edward was head of Chambers for 9 years until 2007.
He is identified as a leading practitioner in several areas in both Chambers & Partners and The Legal 500. His practice includes professional negligence, clinical negligence, personal injury, education, police claims, public law and claims arising from the Human Rights Act. He has been instructed in a large number of the leading cases in these areas over the last 10 years.
Edward is described in the directories as "a master tactician in court" and "the first choice in complex duty of care cases", possessing the "usurpassed ability to identify core legal principles and pursue cases". He "carries a good deal of gravitas given the number of important cases he has been in" and is "very personable, very professional and right at the top of his profession". "His advocacy is both a joy to watch and highly effective" and he is considered by many to be "the best public authority silk there is". An "extremely knowledgeable and persuasive performer", it is "obvious that judges take note of what he says".
He is a contributor to ‘Local Authority Liability’ (Morrell and Foster) (4th Edition). In 2006 he was a special adviser to the Department of Constitutional Affairs on the Compensation Culture.
Edward was awarded the Outstanding Achievement award at the Eclipse Proclaim Personal Injury Awards 2010 and the Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence Silk of the Year award in The Chambers Bar Awards 2009.
