Our Tribunal, ADR and Specialist Advocacy Work

Members of chambers provide specialist advocacy services, strategic advice and support to corporations and individuals facing investigation by regulators and law enforcement authorities both in the UK and overseas. This is particularly so regarding criminal and regulatory investigations by the FSA, SEC, OFT, and Competition Commission.

In a broader litigation context we offer leading counsel to conduct expert cross-examination of witnesses and to present oral submissions in all manner of hearings in the UK and other common law jurisdictions. Such cases include international arbitrations, professional disciplinary proceedings, health and safety, corporate manslaughter, matrimonial work, VAT tribunals, and libel and defamation. Leading counsel is habitually supported by junior counsel specialising in the field.
