The Chambers Doughty Street Chambers is home to some of the brightest lawyers practising at the English Bar. Chambers now comprises almost 140 barristers who all share a fundamental commitment to going “above and beyond” for clients. Clients are almost always individuals or organisations who are in dispute with the State, with Government bodies, or where there is some other inequality of arms; many cases involve issues of human rights and civil liberties. Chambers acts for homeless families, children, victims of trafficking, the socially disadvantaged, the mentally and physically disabled, asylum seekers, those accused of criminal offences, regulated professionals, company directors, magic circle and Big 4 firms, United Nations officials, and Ministers and Heads of Government, as well as the instructing solicitors who represent them. Members practise in crime, civil law, public and administrative law, international law, mediation, and arbitration from four offices in the UK and The Hague, though casework involves clients, issues and courtrooms all over the world.
