Chambers are Open

In these unprecedented times, it is vital for the rule of law not only to apply, but to be seen to be working. The Courts are still open and our barristers are still working.  The Courts have published a variety of protocols, including for remote appearances. Our barristers have been, and continue to be, involved in commercial matters before the Courts and are familiar with the various protocols.

Some of our barristers are working in our physical Chambers,  some remotely and some by a combination of both. We can accept deliveries and conduct conferences; of course, with appropriate distancing.

If there is a Government decreed shut-down, then we will still be available to advise clients and appear in Court remotely.

We are committed to continue to be available to serve our clients through  these difficult times.
