About us

St. Albans Chambers is based in the heart of the commercial and professional district of the cathedral city of St. Albans in Hertfordshire.


St. Albans Chambers was formed in 1998 when a number of Barristers came together to service the needs of the local legal community. Since that time our Barristers have established a reputation for providing an efficient and cost effective service to an ever expanding client base across the South East of England including London, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

Our Barristers are happy to travel elsewhere - should this be required please contact the clerking team.


All our Barristers are independent practitioners with a professional obligation to promote the interests of our clients, whoever they may be. Chambers is committed to the protection of individuals’ rights as well as the interests of corporate clients and public and governmental bodies.


In accordance with our aim to provide highly specialised advice and representation our Barristers are organised into Six practice groups and members practise within these groups.


Although our Barristers remain individual practitioners the grouping system enables us to work together to deliver legal services through sharing legal and practical knowledge and experience.


We are also committed to the implementation and promotion of equality and diversity principles and equal opportunities. Click here to view our Equality and Diversity Policy.
