Brick Court Chambers

Brick Court Chambers is one of the leading sets of barristers’ chambers in the UK, having a strong reputation for Commercial, EU/Competition and Public Law. In addition to providing specialist expertise in each of those areas of law, we are uniquely placed to handle cases involving more than one field. We have 100 members, including 46 QCs, who practise full-time. We also have links in many common law jurisdictions through distinguished door tenants and academics.

Members of chambers are independent and self-employed with a wide diversity of skills and practices.  The Brick Court ethos is always to provide a service of the very highest quality. We pride ourselves not only on excellence in advocacy and advisory work but on being accessible, user friendly and team players.

Accessibility

It is important to us that barristers and staff with disabilities are able to succeed at Brick Court and that disabled clients are able to access our services.

We continuously explore improvements to chambers’ accessibility through the introduction of physical accessibility measures for the benefit of members of chambers, staff and clients. We use external advisers to assess and provide guidance on the accessibility of our buildings and to recommend appropriate measures. One of our members of chambers uses a wheelchair and we also have a visibility-impaired member of chambers. We are happy to assist disabled clients with visits to our building and suggest that they contact us using the details below so that we can discuss accessibility and make arrangements with them in advance of their visit.

Our building

Chambers has two entrances. Our entrance in Essex Street provides step access. Our entrance in Little Essex Street provides step-free access via a curved ramp with a steep gradient of up to 1:9.

Chambers has an underground car park with step access into the building and there is on-street public parking on Essex Street.

We have toilets designed for accessibility on the ground and third floors.

We have two lifts, each of which is wide enough to accommodate one wheelchair user.

We have a portable hearing loop available for meetings.

We have evacuation chairs on our fifth and third floors and our staff is trained in their use.

Should you wish to discuss the accessibility of our building and any reasonable adjustments we can make in respect of visits, please contact Joanne Case. For our Reasonable Adjustments Policy please see here.

Seminars

Members of chambers enjoy presenting seminars to clients and now do so virtually by videolink. They are equally delighted to speak at virtual conferences and roundtables. Please contact marketing@brickcourt.co.uk or any barrister’s clerk to find out more. If you have a topic or a particular barrister in mind, please let us know. Alternatively, we would be happy to make recommendations.

Face to face seminars, as well as larger conferences, are held when circumstances permit.
