Approachable, professional, specialists - Three words that our clients tend to use when asked to describe the people at Guildhall Chambers.


We like to work with you as part of your team. You can call us with a query and one of our barristers will always be happy to chat to you informally over the phone. We don't insist that you come to us for every conference - we are always happy to meet at your offices.


Our clients have confidence in us and our competence. This stems largely from our commitment to specialisation in specific areas of the law. We aim also to be at the forefront of technology - we can communicate with you effectively and efficiently via e-mail and we have wi-fi connectivity in our meeting areas so that you do not feel stranded when you visit us.


We are a multi-disciplinary chambers with six specialist teams of barristers (and various sub-specialities). Our multi-disciplinary expertise has proved vital to clients where cases bridge a number of areas and this innovative approach has enabled us to offer an advantage in terms of the service we offer. We strongly encourage our young barristers to focus on one area of the law within 2 years of finishing their pupillage. That way we can give you the benefit of real competence and breadth of call in particular areas of the law.
