About us

Chambers was founded 40 years ago as a radical set with the aim of representing all sectors of the community and in particular disadvantaged groups. Chambers has since grown and developed to cover many areas of practice but we continue to have a strong commitment to ensuring access to justice for all through first-class representation. We are committed to representation of legally aided clients, which we believe is critically important at a time when legal aid cuts continue to have a pernicious effect. In addition to our legally aided work many of our members are involved with pro bono work in local communities and internationally with the same aim of working with vulnerable groups.

Chambers prides itself on its multi-disciplinary character, ensuring the best representation for our clients by benefiting from expertise within and across practice areas. Our areas of practice include crime, immigration, housing and community care, employment, family law, public and administrative law, international law, extradition, regulatory law, mental health, prison law and inquests.
