For over 40 years Lincoln House has provided advocates of distinction. The set owes its reputation to commercial mentality 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.
“Lincoln House sets the benchmark for quality advocacy on the Northern Circuit and has names that one readily associates with top-quality advocacy”
– Chambers UK
Traditionally, the Bar has been a referral profession with advocates only able to act on instructions from a solicitor, not directly on behalf of a client. With a change in the legal profession, members can now accept instructions on a ‘Direct Access’ basis, that is on the direct instruction of members of the public.
With fourteen experienced silks and 61 skilled juniors, our members have been involved in many leading cases locally and nationally and are renowned for our expert advice and skilled representation. Solicitors regularly point not only to our ability in Court but also to our efficient service and tremendous strength in depth. As a result, we have retained instructions from many leading firms over the last 40 years.
Though 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 also offer counsel experienced in public and administrative law, responding to the increasing demand for representation in action for judicial review where individuals seek to challenge the decisions of public authorities.
Lincoln House Chambers and members are regularly ranked in the Legal Guides for providing a first-class service.
