If you do not currently have a central London presence or you are short of resource on a particular day, then our agency services can help you.
Our barristers are also able to be instructed by other firms in the same way that you could instruct a Barrister in a set of chambers. Our fees would like other Barristers be claimed on the AF1 at no charge to you.
We are located on the edge of Middle Temple opposite the High Court. Additionally as a solicitors firm we are set up to be able to book Prison Visits and undertake other ancillary work that Chambers would not ordinarily do at no extra charge.
