Forum barristers advise and appear in complex, high value disputes in all divisions of the English courts including the Business and Property Courts — particularly the Business List of the Chancery Division and the Commercial Court (Queen’s Bench Division), as well as appearing in overseas Courts and arbitrations.
Forum barristers are predominantly instructed to act on behalf for SMEs and high net worth individuals for whom litigation is often a last resort. Members can be relied upon for pragmatic, definitive and effective advice in order to resolve a client’s legal difficulties including, if necessary, the provision of alternative dispute resolution.
Members of chambers are regularly instructed to advise on technical and developing areas of law including banking and financial services, economic torts, unjust enrichment, and multi-party contractual claims.
Cases are frequently handled by teams of barristers within chambers, pooling their expertise and devising innovative strategies for the benefit of the client. Our members take full control of each case, and they are prepared to involve themselves in every step of its progress as well as maintaining regular contact with the professional client.
Alongside this higher profile casework, junior members regularly appear in medium-sized disputes including those heard in the County Court.
