Like everyone at the bar, Holborn Chambers is transforming to face the current and future changes under a new management committee.
We can offer:
- Financially secure set
- Low guaranteed rent
- New and stable infrastructure
- New and professional clerking
- Newly refurbished premises
- Unparalleled Direct Access opportunities
- Modern methods of marketing to procure work
All disciplines are welcome. However immigration and civil are areas rapidly expanding where chambers requires barristers.
There are unprecedented opportunities for Direct Access work.
If you wish to find out more about these changes please contact Emma Thompson (firstname.lastname@example.org)
All applicants and enquiries will be treated in the strictest confidence.
