"A terrific range of counsel is available at this set, which in a little over 20 years has created a strong identity at the Bar." - Chambers & Partners
Civil practice teams at Doughty Street Chambers have always recognised that our key strength lies in our multi-disciplinary approach to casework. With such diverse expertise our barristers are uniquely placed to address the cross-over issues often interwoven within our cases.
Administrative and public law is at the heart of Doughty Street Chambers with more than 50 barristers of all levels of call practicing in this area.
Doughty Street Chambers is one of the most international sets in the UK.
Sources admire its “genuine commitment to civil liberties” and its “incredibly long history of doing human rights work.”
In the field of product liability and group actions Doughty Street Chambers members have been involved in many of the high profile group actions in recent years for claimants and the team includes practitioners from all levels in Chambers.

International law and institutional abuse: Ivory Coast toxic dumping, Gulf War Syndrome, South African mining claims, Bangladesh water poisoning litigation, Porton Down, Mau Mau litigation and Kenyan Rape and Masai claims against the Ministry of Defence, North West Homes litigation and phone hacking litigation.
