In 2015, under the leadership of Head of Chambers at the time, Andrew Axon, we underwent a radical restructure that involved creating an Executive Committee (responsible for driving growth) and a Service Company (responsible for internal operations).

The restructure was motivated by a need to ensure that Chambers is positioned to deliver a legal service that is efficient and responsive to the changing legal landscape.

This innovative approach to the structure of a Chambers is the first of its kind and represents Chambers' commitment towards its long-term growth plans and enhanced client-solicitor experience.

Executive Management Committee
The Executive Management Committee's role is to oversee and drive delivery on all aspects of Chambers growth strategy. The committee comprises Members of Chambers, as well as several external Consultants who are well recognised within their fields of expertise.

Service Company
Chambers has a separate Service Company charged with managing the internal systems associated with running barristers' chambers, including finance, building management and HR.

The Service Company is made up of barristers, staff and external consultants, whose role it is to oversee all of Chambers internal operations and to ensure the efficient delivery of legal services.

We operate an open communications policy using the latest digital technology. This affords our clients full access to members of chambers.

 

We are proud to have earned ISO 9001, and the Quality Mark for the Bar until its disbandment in 2012.
