Conferences / Calls

All our Barristers and Practice Managers have telephone and video conferencing facilities available to them.  Please contact the Practice Managers if you want to arrange a meeting or call.

Papers / Deliveries

Please send papers electronically, rather than via post or DX.  If you need to send documents to our barristers please call the Practice Managers to discuss the most efficient process for delivery of documents.  Please do not send papers to Chambers without prior arrangement as there may be an additional delay in getting to their intended recipient.
