Chris Quinn

"an excellent trial advocate and uncompromising cross-examiner."

Legal 500 (2019)


Chris is recognised as one of the leading trial advocates in employment disputes (both High Court and Tribunal). He has appeared in many of the leading recent trials as well as many high-profile commercial cases. He also has an extensive appellate practice.

Chris’ approachability and commitment to cases makes him a firm favourite with solicitors and clients alike- as is reflected in numerous reviews in Chambers & Partners and Legal 500, such as “Tactically astute and gets to grips with the detail. Robust and confidence-inspiring with clients.”

He is frequently instructed in initially urgent cases requiring injunctive relief where clients are looking for counsel capable of both assimilating complex business information quickly and then providing decisive and intelligible advice as to how best to proceed as well as a proven ability to get results. Indeed, according to Chambers and Partners, Chris “is often the first port of call in high-value City disputes and is particularly recommended for injunctive relief cases”.

Chris is counsel of choice when solicitors expect their clients’ employment disputes to go all the way to trial. Ranked as a leading practitioner in both Employment and Commercial Dispute Resolution, according to the directories he is “an excellent trial advocate and uncompromising cross-examiner”; “A tenacious and dogged opponent, with a justified reputation for being a fighter”, “A tremendous cross-examiner and effective fighter” who “produces clear, crisp and persuasive arguments” and “Diligent and effective with difficult witnesses.”

Chris’ client-base consists primarily of companies, partnerships and LLPs and/or senior individuals within the same who find themselves facing, or who wish to avoid, significant commercial and/or employment disputes.

A previous nominee for Chambers & Partners Employment barrister of the year award, Chris is the author and principal presenter of  Littleton’s intensive training exercise for senior associates entitled “How to handle an Urgent High Court Employment Dispute”.

Chris is direct access accredited.
