Who's Who Legal UK Bar - Professional Negligence - Juniors

Helen Evans was called to the bar in 2001 and practises from 4 New Square in the fields of professional negligence, disciplinary, insurance, financial services and civil fraud. Helen has been listed as a recommended junior for professional liability work for several years in The Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners. She is also recommended by The Legal 500 for insurance and professional discipline.

Recent comments from the directories describe her as “the perfect blend of intellect and charm”, “an extremely skilled tactician and a joy to watch in court”, and "formidable on paper, on her feet, and in cross-examination." She is also said to be “highly sought after for her professional negligence expertise and ... considered a go-to by solicitors”, with sources adding that “she provides technically excellent advice and is a real fighter”.

A large part of Helen’s practice comprises litigation against solicitors and barristers, often acting on multi-party or high-value claims. She is the co-editor of the chapters on solicitors’ and barristers’ negligence in the leading textbook, Jackson & Powell on Professional Liability.

Helen also handles complex cases against accountants, auditors, IFAs, company directors, valuers and brokers. She is adept at dealing with technical accountancy, auditing and financial services issues and cross-examining experts. Helen appeared in a four-week trial before the Disciplinary Committee of the Financial Reporting Council in late 2017 and has extensive knowledge of regulatory and disciplinary issues.

Helen’s civil fraud practice means that she has significant experience of freezing injunctions, Norwich Pharmacal orders and other interim relief.

WWL says: Helen Evans stands out as one of the most highly regarded barristers in the field. Peers regard her as “thorough and meticulous”, and say she “can unpick the most complicated of cases”.
