20 Essex Street Chambers

20 Essex Street Chambers 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.

The set 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.

Our premises in London are close to the Royal Courts of Justice and leading arbitration centres. We also have a fully staffed office at Maxwell Chambers in Singapore.
