THE CHAMBERS
St Ives is a multidisciplinary set with particular expertise in family law, housing, business and property, regulatory and criminal law. Recognised as one of the leading sets of chambers on the Midland Circuit. It is also unparalleled in the region for its extensive provision of dispute resolution (within family law), ranging from early neutral evaluations, private FDRs, and arbitration.

Chambers works in partnership with all clients including professional and lay clients, local government, companies, and housing associations, in order to ensure consistent excellence in the delivery of services, from initial instruction until case completion. The set prides itself on its attention to detail, approachability and efficiency. This ethos is underpinned by a professional and friendly clerking service that works hard to ensure smooth delivery of services.

St Ives is pleased to enjoy a national profile, accepting instructions from all regions and regularly being instructed in high profile cases across the country.

THE SET
Chambers is proud of its reputation for outstanding service and excellence in all areas of advocacy and advisory work and boasts some of the most renowned and experienced practitioners in the Midlands, past and present. With over 80 tenants and a dozen silks available for instruction through chambers, St Ives is able to offer clients expertise at all levels.

St Ives is routinely listed in national legal directories as a leading set, with many barristers regularly contributing to legal publications and being published authors of seminal legal texts. Many members of chambers also hold part-time judicial appointments, including Deputy High Court Judges, Recorders, and deputy district judges (both civil and criminal).

Former members include a Lady Justice of Appeal, High Court Judge, and numerous circuit and district judges.
