20 Essex Street is a leading and long-established set of commercial barristers’ chambers whose members offer great breadth and depth of legal expertise and litigation experience.
Members of chambers are instructed on behalf of individual, corporate and governmental clients from around the world to advise and appear as advocates in court or arbitration in relation to a broad range of commercial, EU, competition, human rights and public international law disputes.
20 Essex Street is also home to a number of highly respected domestic and international arbitrators and mediators, some of whom were previously judges either in the UK or overseas.

Members of chambers work in a wide range of different legal areas in a great variety of factual contexts. Most of the work which we do has an international element.
