THE CHAMBERS Maitland Chambers is widely recognised as one of the leading sets at the English Bar practising primarily in the fields of business and property litigation. Its multi-disciplinary expertise across a broad range of both chancery and commercial disciplines has proved crucial to clients where cases span a number of areas, and provides an advantage in terms of the service offered when traditional specialisms overlap. Maitland Chambers is one of the largest commercial chancery sets, with over 60 members, including 24 silks.

WORK UNDERTAKEN Maitland Chambers has the breadth and depth to provide advocacy and advisory services in every area that can arise in a business and/or property dispute. It handles a very wide range of cases, from major litigation involving multi-national companies to county court disputes. Much of its work is carried out in London, although it frequently advises and appears for clients in other parts of the United Kingdom. Many of its members also practise in other jurisdictions including Hong Kong, Singapore, the Cayman Islands, the British Virgin Islands, Brunei, Cyprus, the Channel Islands and the USA.

Modern cases often do not fit neatly into traditional categories. Maitland’s size and breadth of expertise ensures that it can provide teams of barristers to deal rapidly and thoroughly with complex cases that raise a wide range of issues. As such, it has an advantage over those who specialise in narrower fields of business law.

INTERNATIONAL Although based in London, Maitland Chambers regularly acts in non-UK cases where members’ expertise in English law (and familiarity with overseas law and jurisdictions), oral and written advocacy skills, and litigation and arbitration experience provide genuine added value. Members advise; appear as advocates before foreign courts and tribunals; otherwise assist in the conduct or resolution of disputes (including all forms of ADR); take appointments as arbitrators; and provide expert evidence of law in foreign proceedings.
