A leading civil common law set of barristers chambers

The Chambers of John Ross QC


1 Chancery Lane is a leading civil common law set of barristers chambers. From our modern, state of the art premises comes a wealth and breadth of experience gained in some of the leading cases of the last 50 years.  Our expertise and high quality service is reflected in the comments clients have made about us (quoted in Chambers and Partners UK Bar Guide 2014):-

"This is a very well-oiled machine - instructions are delivered to barristers on time, and there is always a dialogue over any timetable problems they have.  They are fantastic."

"We sing from the same hymn sheet - there's a lot of two-way communication; we work as a team."

We put our clients' needs first and pride ourselves on providing a consistently high quality service both from our barristers and our clerks.  We offer our clients training and regular service reviews, and we actively seek to offer commercial and flexible working solutions.
