Our switchboard number is +44 (0)20 7404 1313.  Because our barristers are usually in court, it is not always possible to contact them directly but our switchboard team will be able to assist.  

The direct dials and email addresses of all our support team are available on our staff page - click here to view those.

If you require out of hours assistance on urgent case-related matters or press enquiries, you will find relevant contact details below.

You will also find information on visiting each of our offices below.  Given the historic nature of some of our buildings, it would be helpful to have advance notice of any accessibility requirements you may have so we can prepare for your visit accordingly.
