What this means for clients

The leading independent directory, The Legal 500, comments that Serjeants’ Inn Chambers provides a first-class service throughout, and goes the extra mile for its clients. The quality of work is outstanding and you are always able to instruct a suitable barrister, even at the last minute”.

In a typical recent example we were instructed (on the recommendation of the judge who was due to hear the application) shortly before midnight on a Saturday, obtaining the necessary court order in the early hours of the Sunday morning.
