Credit Hire

Credit hire is a relatively straight forward concept however credit hire litigation can be anything but straight forward and potentially a minefield for the uninitiated. In 2018 we were booked to attend over 500 multi-track, fast-track & small claim Credit Hire Hearings in a total of 43 different Courts.

The Credit Hire Barristers at Queen Square Chambers have years of experience representing both claimants and defendants in all types of matters right through to substantial multi-track matters and appeals. The team can assist at every stage from pre-issue advice, drafting proceedings and Part 18 Questions to representation at trial and appeal.
