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.

Barristers from Chambers are regularly instructed by solicitors from the South East of England including London, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire as well as local authorities and government bodies. Chambers is on the approved list for a number of London local authorities. In addition, our Barristers accept instructions under the General Council of the Bar’s Direct Public Access scheme.

Our ethos

St Albans Chambers puts client care at the heart of its service. Our clients appreciate our flexible and friendly approach, which goes hand-in-hand with the highest professional standards.


We have an experienced Clerking Team led by Practice Manager Alex Carter-Gaunt. Chambers prides itself on the approachability of our Barristers and staff, as well as the knowledge and expertise we bring to all the work that we undertake.
