Our clients

St John’s Chambers has been recommended as a ‘Top Tier Set’ in the Western Circuit’s Leading Set by The Legal 500 and a ‘Top Ranked Set’ in the 2021 edition of Chambers UK.

St John’s Chambers has a richly varied client base, from law firms large and small to multi-national businesses, high net-worth individuals and people from all walks of life. Our client base includes many regional and national law firms as well as local firms. Through our solicitor clients, we advise and represent large public and privately-owned businesses, public sector organisations, prominent regional businesses, SMEs, professional practices and private individuals from all parts of the South West and South Wales and beyond.

With over 80 barristers including ten silks and with legal expertise in all major areas of law, we use our knowledge and experience to achieve the best solution for each and every client. Our barristers are highly skilled and versatile lawyers, committed to providing service of the highest quality and achieving the best possible outcome. We have the strength and depth of expertise to advise on any claim, however complex or whatever its value.

Business clients within the region and across the UK

As a leading commercial set, we provide comprehensive legal advice to businesses within the region and across the UK. We act for commercial clients large and small in many different sectors, from banking and financial services to construction, engineering and real estate.

Public Access

Through the public access scheme, we also advise clients directly rather than through solicitors. Our direct clients range from members of the public to planning consultants, managing directors, doctors, HR departments and CEOs.

In-house counsel

We provide in-house counsel with a complete package of high-quality legal services. Whilst not every case is suitable for direct instruction, in the right circumstances we can manage all aspects of a case avoiding the need for you to engage an additional legal team.

Top tier legal expertise

Our barristers provide top tier legal advice and representation as well as exemplary service and timely turnaround of work. Our highly capable clerking teams ensure that, for each individual case, the right barrister with the appropriate level of seniority and experience is instructed.

We were voted ‘Regional Set of the Year 2018’ by the ‘Legal 500’ UK Bar Directory. Each year ‘Legal 500’ carries out in-depth research across the whole of the UK legal sector to identify the best sets out there, and this award clearly recognises St John’s as a stand out national set.

As a client or prospective client, you are welcome to visit our offices at any time, although we would recommend you make an appointment beforehand. Our modern purpose-built offices in the centre of Bristol are easily accessible, close to the City’s historic harbour and major road links and just a short walk from Bristol Temple Meads train station.
