Enterprise Chambers is noted for its strength in landlord and tenant disputes, with tenants frequently acting on both sides of complex disputes. Additional strength is found in complementary areas such as insolvency, professional negligence and a wide variety of cases heard in the Chancery Division. One solicitor remarks: "I find them very easy to work with and very helpful."

Client service:

"The clerks are very easy-going and a safe pair of hands." Michael Ireland is the senior clerk.
