Client service:

Foundry Chambers is a set with an illustrious track record which has over the years handled criminal matters of great importance and built up a strong reputation for its appellate work. It both prosecutes and defends, and is instructed by top defence solicitors and prosecuting bodies such as the SFO, NCA and CPS Special and Complex Crime Units. A number of the cases it undertakes attract media attention. Examples include the murder by decapitation case of R v Philip Tarver, and the high-profile love triangle case of R v Andrew Jones, where the defendant lured his wife’s lover to a remote location for execution. Sources consider the chambers to be "a definite go-to set for serious general and financial crime."
