Jamie Smith

Call: 1995

"He is a good team player with a fine legal brain. He is highly analytical and is able to see through complicated legal issues and distil them down to the essential points." "He is extremely intelligent, very approachable and a strong advocate. He adds value throughout the process and he's always engaged." (Chambers & Partners 2015)

During his time in Chambers, Jamie has built up a practice embracing professional liability work, insurance matters and commercial dispute resolution. In all that he does, Jamie brings a meticulous eye for detail and a complete commitment to the cause.

In recent years, Jamie has been involved in several high-profile lawyers’ liability cases, which have taken him to the House of Lords (Moy v. Pettman Smith), to football stadia (Football League v. edge ellison) and to a different world (The TAG litigation).

Jamie’s achievements have long been recognised by the Directories. Described as “devastatingly intelligent” and as having “a phenomenal work rate, and the rare skill of being able to pinpoint the heart of a case very quickly”, Jamie has been in the top category of professional negligence juniors since 2008. He received the Chambers & Partners’ ‘Professional Negligence Junior of the Year’ award in 2011, and is in the ‘Star’ category for professional negligence.

Jamie is a committee member of the Professional Negligence Bar Association and a member of the Chancery Bar Association, London Common Law & Commercial Bar Association and the British Insurance Law Association.
