For over 30 years Lincoln House has provided advocates of distinction. The set owes its reputation to a corps of advocates who retain a commitment to a modern responsive approach to practice. This commercial mentality is combined with a strong sense of practical problem-solving and a tradition of robust advocacy. The result has been that members have considerable experience and a clear lead over circuit rivals in their practice profiles.
Traditionally, the Bar has been a referral profession: advocates were only able to act on instructions from a solicitor, not directly on behalf of a client. The legal profession has now changed and members of Lincoln House are now able to accept instructions on a ‘Direct Access’ basis, that is on the direct instruction of members of the public. ‘Lincoln House Direct’ should be the contact point, via the link at the top of the page, for any members of the public interested in instructing a barrister directly.
Members of Chambers have been involved in many of the leading cases on Circuit and nationwide over the years and we are renowned for our expert advice and skilled representation. Solicitors regularly point not only to our ability in Court but also to the efficient service that we offer and our tremendous strength in depth. As a result, we have retained instructions from many leading firms over the last 30 years.
Predominantly a criminal set with a particular expertise in complex fraud work, Chambers has also developed a strong civil wing, in which there is particular attention to disease work, clinical negligence and personal injury.
There are teams of advocates in regulatory practice, working with clients before the medical and healthcare tribunals, police disciplinary tribunals and the licensing authorities.
Chambers can also offer counsel experienced in public and administrative law, responding to the increasing demand for representation in actions for judicial review where individuals seek to challenge the decisions of public authorities.
Chambers is well placed to claim that it can offer a first-class service in a number of established and developing fields. This has allowed an evolution in the make-up of Chambers and in areas of practice. These changes allow Lincoln House to claim a formidable strength in depth and a dynamism which cannot be matched by rival sets or by in-house counsel.
Lincoln House today is proud of its strong ethos of excellence, client care and mutual support between its members.
Lincoln House is located in Manchester City Centre, close to the Civil Justice Centre and the Crown Courts in Manchester.
