Sue Carr QC
Sue was recently chairman of the Professional Negligence Bar Association. She has experience of claims at all levels involving the full range of professionals. Her practice extends to disciplinary and wasted costs work and related judicial review claims. She appeared in the House of Lords (in the now leading case on constructive trusts and solicitors' dishonesty) and has appeared as leading counsel in many high profile professional liability cases, including by way of example AXA v Darby Solicitors (limitation in economic loss), Football League v Edge Ellison and another (alleged negligence in relation to the sale of licensing rights to ONDigital), Daniels v Thompson (solicitors’ duties to executors), and the Cable & Wireless litigation (alleged re-insurance fraud involving solicitors). She has acted in several leading group litigation actions, including MMR, lenders' claims arising out of shared ownership schemes, film financing and The Accident Group Litigation.
Sue has a “fully deserved” reputation as “one of the very best professional negligence counsel”. Sue has been listed consistently in Chambers & Partners Directory and the Legal 500 as a leading professional negligence practitioner. She has variously been described as "the whole package - she has great presence in court, is deeply incisive and is very client-friendly.", "involved in everything going" and “a broad based professional negligence specialist who can turn her hand to anything”.
