Rachel Sleeman is Head of Chambers, supported by Sam Phillips as Deputy Head of Chambers. Chambers, and its members, are consistently ranked in both The Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners. David Portch heads our “exceptional” clerking team.

We work with professional and lay clients across a broad range of industry sectors within our areas of expertise. Our barristers pride themselves on offering a user-friendly and cost-effective service. Because our members appear frequently in all levels of courts and tribunals across England and Wales, we are able to provide first-rate advocacy services and a valuable insight into litigation tactics and procedure. In addition to our litigation expertise, we can also assist clients with non-contentious matters.

Our barristers offer services to Authorised Persons on The (New) Standard Contractual Terms published by the Bar Council, or on such other terms as may be agreed.
