Chambers UK Bar names David Streatfeild-James QC as one of its “Stars at the Bar” for the second year running

1st Nov 2019

Chambers & Partners has again named David Streatfeild-James QC as one of its 25 Stars at the Bar in its 2020 UK Bar Guide.

According to Chambers & Partners:

“David Streatfeild-James QC is one of the most accomplished practitioners handling construction disputes, and this year marks a decade since he was first star-rated by Chambers and Partners. The esteem in which he is held is clear from this comment by a market source: ‘He is highly intelligent, a very polished performer, a fantastic advocate and definitely one of the stars of the Bar.’ He is instructed on many of the weightiest and knottiest cases in the field, a recent highlight being his representation of a joint venture comprising of CVU, Colas, Volker Highways and Aecom in a dispute concerning a PFI framework agreement for the provision of highway maintenance services in central London, which culminated in a two-week TCC trial”.

“Further to his star ranking for construction, he has long-standing band one ratings for the related categories of international arbitration and professional negligence. Streatfeild-James receives similar approbation for his work on energy and natural resources cases, and information technology disputes, for which he has also been awarded band one ratings for many years. Sources who have worked closely with him note that in spite of his seniority he is happy to ‘roll his sleeves up’ and muck in on case preparation, and that in court he ‘has a very nice manner with the tribunal and is very good on his feet in a gentle, persuasive manner’. Another source made a fine summary of the standing and qualities that mark Streatfeild-James out as a star of the Bar: ‘He is truly magnificent and should be at the top of every shortlist when shopping for a silk, no matter the size or value of the dispute. He is astronomically intelligent, with an ability to grasp both the breadth and the detail of a dispute in short order. He’s an advocate of the very highest calibre.'”
