Chambers is always pleased to consider tenancy applications from established practitioners (including solicitors, patent and trade mark attorneys covered by an Approved Regulator) with specialisms within or complementary to those of Chambers. Applications will be evaluated initially by a small committee, which will then decide whether to interview potential candidates. All applications will be treated in confidence. The committee looks for able, personable individuals who can demonstrate suitable experience and ability across a range of advocacy, advisory and written work. Final decisions as to tenancy applications are made by Chambers as a whole.
Please send applications marked “Tenancy” (for established barrister practitioners) and “Cross Qualifying Practitioner” (for solicitors, trade mark and patent attorneys) to Jonathan Moss. All applications will be dealt with in accordance with the relevant requirements of the Bar Standards Board and Bar Council.
Applications should be in the form of a CV and covering letter, and should address the reasons for applying to join Chambers.
Where an established practitioner is seeking to cross-qualify to the Bar, their application should also indicate the basis of any exemptions they have been granted (or are in the process of seeking) from the BSB.
