Background

We have continually, though carefully, expanded since the 1960s, when Chambers first decided to specialise in criminal law. With 66 tenants, led by 5 Queen's Counsel, we can provide strength, depth and dedicated representation at every level of the criminal law.

At every stage in our history we have championed equal opportunities; as a result we have a particularly strong and diverse array of experience. Several of our former members are now judges, including one who was appointed Judge Advocate General. We have the further advantage that our excellent team of clerks are able to match every brief to the barrister whose skills are most suited. This ensures that we can maintain extremely high standards in our work.

The Legal 500 has the following testimonials:
