THE CHAMBERS
29 Bedford Row Chambers is committed to providing its clients with an effective and efficient legal service. It operates from three magnificent Grade II listed buildings in the heart of legal London, and offers top of the range AV suites for conferences and remote or hybrid court hearings.

WORK UNDERTAKEN
Chambers offers specialist expertise at every level of seniority in all aspects of family law including matrimonial finance, children (both public and private law), child abduction, cohabitation law, domestic violence and under the Civil Partnership and Inheritance Acts. Chambers has a strong team of top flight financial remedy practitioners. Several members practise as mediators and several others are qualified as Family Law Arbitrators and/or as collaborative lawyers. Many members also chair private FDRs and Early Neutral Evaluation hearings and, with two large boardrooms and eight conference rooms (all of which have been recently refurbished), chambers is well suited to these ever more important forms of non-court dispute resolution. Some members accept Direct (Public) Access instructions. Several former members of chambers have taken judicial appointments, and many current members sit as Deputy High Court Judges or as Recorders or Deputy District Judges. Chambers organises a comprehensive seminar programme which is highly regarded by solicitors and trainees and also supports initiatives to increase equality and diversity at the Bar. Members of chambers appear in courts around the country and internationally.

ADMINISTRATION
Chambers is served by nine full time clerks and a dedicated fees clerk, allowing work to be processed quickly and efficiently. The clerks’ room is open between 8.30 am and 6.00 pm, but emergency contact is always available outside that time. The clerking team is praised for its efficient, friendly and commercial approach.

For information about the work of chambers generally, or the practice of individual members of chambers in particular, please contact the Senior Clerk, James Shortall, or visit the website – www.29br.co.uk.
