How we work

As with other sets of chambers, we are a group of independent barristers who operate together in a collegiate environment.

Generally, we accept instructions from solicitors directed through our clerking team. In some cases we can accept instructions direct from other professionals. Our clerks can assist if you have a direct access query.

This website contains information on chambers' practice areas and individual profiles. However, please do not hesitate to speak to our clerking team if you require assistance in identifying the most appropriate individual or group of members to assist with your case.

Information Barriers

In contrast to solicitors practicing in partnership, different members of chambers can be instructed on opposites sides of a case. Due to the high number of specialist counsel in chambers, our members frequently appear against each other.

We have a rigorous “Information Barriers” policy in place to deal with these circumstances and ensure complete confidentiality. In such cases each party will be allocated a dedicated clerking team to ensure that the separation of advice and representation is supported by full separation in the practical running of the litigation. Our policy  fully complies with Bar Council recommendations in this area.
