Formidably strong local set. London set service, but just around the corner from the office. Have come to the fore with assistance during Covid-19 lockdown. Everyone sings from the same hymn sheet and understand each others specialities.”

We have a proven track record of successfully supporting barristers in transitioning from practising in London and on regional circuits to practising on the Western Circuit. We aim to deliver an exceptional service and to be the pre-eminent set in our main practice areas.

We are always interested in applications from excellent established practitioners who can demonstrate a strong business case for their recruitment. Practitioners may apply to one of our three core practice groups:

We also consider applications from very impressive junior tenants below 5 years’ call.

At present we are particularly interested in applications from established commercial and chancery practitioners, however, applications to any of the three practice groups are welcome.

We are committed to diversity, inclusion and equality and further details about our approach in this regard can be found here.
