The Chambers was set up in 1990 by a group of independent-minded barristers who broke the constraints of tradition by moving out of the Inns of Court and pioneering new standards of excellence. Their commitment to first-rate legal expertise and equality of access to justice and human rights remains at the heart of Chambers.
