"It is as far removed from a stuffy set of chambers as is possible."
Chambers UK 

Formed in 1971 in central Bristol, Guildhall is renowned for consistently attracting high level complex instructions; and recognised for excellence in three key areas: advice, advocacy and client service.

Our members and staff are essential to our continued success and it is therefore important to us that we continue to invest in our people to always ensure we retain our collegiate culture and high standards of service for ourselves and our clients.

Why work for us?

Guildhall Chambers is one of the UK's leading barrister sets.

We offer the following:

  • A focus on specialisation, quality and client care
  • Consistent tier one rankings in Chambers and Partners and Legal 500
  • We embrace a modern by collegiate approach to working
  • One of the few sets to hold a Certificate of Recognition for Wellbeing at the bar

Our growth and success has been due in no small part to the care we take in recruiting our pupils and in selecting experienced barristers to join our teams.

We are always keen to meet with and talk to successful practitioners who are considering a move away from London or simply a change of chambers.

If you fall into either of these categories please contact our Senior Practice Manager, Lucy Northeast on 0117 930 9000.
