Credit Hire

Kenworthy’s Chambers specialist Credit Hire team deliver up-to-the-minute advice and representation in this dynamic and often complex field of law. The team has a strong reputation for achieving excellent outcomes for claimant and defendant clients.

Our Credit Hire Barristers are well-versed in all usual arguments raised in credit hire cases and have specific experience dealing with more niche issues such as measure of loss, subrogation, taxi claims, and commercial/fleet vehicles. We handle multi-track through to small claims as well as appeals at all levels.

Many of our team members have worked as Solicitors, fee-earners, or Advocates before coming to the Bar. This gives Kenworthy’s Barristers a unique perspective on the life cycle of Credit Hire cases and a thorough understanding of the day to day running of a caseload. As a result, our team can provide strategic advice throughout the stages of a claim, from pre-litigation, through interlocutory issues, to advocacy at final hearings in the County Court and Higher Courts, including at appeal.

Kenworthy’s Chambers’ experienced team of Credit Hire Barristers can provide in-house training and workshops for Solicitors, Insurers, and Credit Hire Organisations.
