Our barristers are self-employed within chambers, and are therefore separate and independent from one another in their practices. Barristers within Guildhall Chambers are not responsible for the work of another barrister in chambers and can act against each other in the same case.
Guildhall Chambers are also fortunate to have a team of clerks (and practice managers), who manage the diaries of barristers, take instructions on their behalf and are responsible for the negotiation of fees. Please contact the clerks for all discussions on fees. Please note that the clerks cannot (and will not) give you legal advice.
