THE DOUGHTY STREET CRIME TEAM SEEKS APPLICATIONS FOR TWO JUNIORS; ONE OF 5 YEARS CALL OR UNDER AND ONE MORE ESTABLISHED PRACTITIONER
Doughty Street Chambers proudly enjoys a strong national and international brand and reputation for the fearless representation of clients in dispute with the state. Chambers now seek applications from juniors of 5 years call and under as well as from more established juniors as part of our ongoing strategy to develop and strengthen our criminal team.
Our criminal barristers represent 40% of the total membership of Chambers and they offer a broad range of experience which allows us to provide a holistic service to clients, unrivalled elsewhere at the Bar: in addition to criminal trial work across the full spectrum of offences and appellate courts (from the magistrates’ courts to the Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights) we are also well-regarded specialists in criminal appeals, regulatory and business crime, extradition, terrorism and national security work, and public law issues arising in the criminal justice system. We have a strong international crime practice which comprises domestic cases in overseas courts (such as Northern Ireland, Hong Kong and the Caribbean), in appeals to the Privy Council, and in cases heard by international tribunals.
Across all of Chambers we foster a multi-disciplinary approach to our casework, meaning members of our crime team regularly work closely with colleagues in other teams (e.g. actions against the police, inquests and inquiries, professional discipline and regulatory). We are unique in our ability to offer an environment where dedicated criminal practitioners can complement their practice with other relevant income streams.
If you are interested in joining a well-respected team of exceptionally able and creative criminal lawyers, we would be pleased to hear from you. Applications will be treated in strictest confidence, and should be made by completing and submitting an application form (5 years of call or under via this link or established practitioner via this link). Should you wish to speak with us before making an application, please contact our Chief Executive Mark Dembovsky (firstname.lastname@example.org) to arrange a discussion.
