“St John’s Chambers is one of Bristol’s leading sets of chambers for company advisory and advocacy work, with its barristers obtaining regular instruction in shareholder disputes, directors’ duties and directors’ disqualification cases. The set is praised by sources for its provision of commercially minded advice and the professional and incredibly flexible attitude of its barristers. Chambers UK, Company (2017)


Our company team provides specialist expertise in company law, particularly as regards to shareholder disputes, directors’ duties, liability of directors to third parties, and directors’ disqualifications.

Members also advise on matters relating to share capital, including the issue, allotment and transfer of shares, reductions of capital, purchase of shares and financial assistance of shares, and procedural matters relating to companies such as meetings and resolutions.

“Their clerks and support team are definitely up there with the best in terms of their knowledge of their own members, their recommendations and their overall attitude.” Chambers UK, Company (2017)
