THE CHAMBERS 

7BR is a leading multi-disciplinary set, providing unrivalled expertise across a broad spectrum of the law. Widely recognised for its long-established history in advocacy and advisory services, members deliver innovative solutions to complex legal problems and succeed in some of the most challenging of cases. 7BR has a reputation for excellence; “the set is applauded for its members’ high quality and secures instructions in cases of the highest calibre” — Chambers and Partners. 89 members, including 18 QCs, practice in courts and tribunals throughout England and Wales as well as internationally. Members have recently appeared in high profile cases in Hong Kong, Trinidad and Tobago, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands. The set’s expertise is evidenced by the number of members going on to distinguished service in the judiciary; as justices of both the Court of Appeal and the High Court, Recorders, Arbitrators and Regulators — in addition to two Lord Chief Justices. 7BR barristers pride themselves on providing an approachable service, working closely with clients to understand the personal or commercial drivers underlying any given litigation. Both members and clerks work tirelessly to ensure that lay clients are well-informed at all stages of the process. 7BR is actively involved in pro bono work. Alongside efforts to promote equality and diversity at the Bar, Chambers also supports charitable causes through participation in fundraising events.
