With 19 experienced silks and 63 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 45 years.
Our relationships with leading specialist solicitors, and expert witnesses, in our areas of expertise, allow us to help clients in identifying the best legal teams for the case. We regularly assist clients with professional recommendations, and make introductions, to help facilitate effective communication channels.
Both Lincoln House Chambers and many of the individual members are regularly ranked in the leading Legal Guides for being leaders in the fields and providing a first-class service.
The members and staff at Lincoln House Chambers are strongly committed to our core values, diversity and accessibility are widely championed.
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, some members can now accept instructions, on appropriate cases, on a ‘Direct Access’ basis, that is on the direct instruction of members of the public.
All members of Chambers are registered with both the BSB and the ICO. To access the Barristers’ Register page on the BSB’s website please click here. The Barristers’ Register shows (1) who has a current practising certificate, and (2) whether a barrister has any disciplinary findings against them.
