Are you an experienced barrister?

Principally, we welcome enquiries from any experienced barrister with proven advocacy skills who can add depth and breadth to our specialist teams.

We would like to hear from you if you have more than ten years’ experience in any of the following legal sectors: Commercial Law, Property Law, Employment Law, Family Law, Business Immigration or Regulatory Law.

Would you be a good fit?

We believe that rapport is just as important as professional suitability for a good working match. Our Chambers has a distinctive personality, which was summed up by the consultants who helped with our recent re-branding:

  • Contemporary and relevant
  • Full of vitality and energy
  • Accessible and responsive

For us the client’s interests are paramount and we believe that developing strong relationships and providing great service are the keys to long term success. If that description fits in with your world view, then we may suit each other very well.

Diversity, equality and flexibility

At Five Paper we are committed to the principle of equal opportunities for all. We value diversity within our team and amongst our clients and those we meet during the course of our work. We fully support equal opportunities and enforce anti-discrimination legislation.

You can view our Equal Opportunities and Equality Code here.

We believe that being a barrister is a privilege and that our way of earning a living should not become a chore. We therefore aim to strike a balance between hard work and quality of life. To help achieve that balance, we encourage flexible working and home-working, and we have excellent arrangements in place for maternity leave.
