About Church Court Chambers

Church Court Chambers is one of the Country’s leading sets of barristers’ chambers, founded over 10 years ago with a simple ethos and philosophy: to uphold the greatest traditions of the Bar namely professionalism, integrity, independence and commitment.

Our Head of Chambers is leading silk, Michael Mather-Lees KC.

Chambers is housed within a fantastic building, which was formerly the London Patent Office, in the heart of Legal London. The building allows us to service our clients and Members with the perfect fusion of tradition and modern comforts, including improved technology and stunning conference facilities.

Our Members enjoy busy and varied practices; collectively they have an enviable back catalogue of high-profile and complex matters such as the Damilola Taylor murder trial, the Luton Slavery Trial, the Jimmy Savile Inquiry and The Marrache Fraud Case. They have appeared at every level including in the Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights. Individually they are all highly regarded and respected by their peers and the judiciary.

In addition to traditional advocacy and advisory services, many Members of Church Court Chambers lecture in their respective field of expertise and are published authors, including contributors to practitioner texts.
