About us

East Anglian Chambers is a set of barristers providing expert legal advice and representation to clients in courts and tribunals across the nation.

As a team of 40 plus lawyers with extensive experience in a range of legal specialisms and offices in Ipswich, Norwich and Chelmsford we nevertheless assist clients all over the country. Our team members are experts in their fields, and we can help with most situations.

A number of our members sit as part-time judges in the courts or tribunals, demonstrating their level of skill and experience in their chosen areas of law.

The barristers are supported by a team of dedicated and dynamic clerks who will be your first point of contact, and who ensure that East Anglian Chambers maintains its outstanding reputation and high levels of service and success for clients.

Service standards, feedback and complaints
We want you to measure us by the excellence of the advice and representation we provide, and the personal nature of the care we take for all our lay and professional clients, whether individuals, businesses, solicitors or other referral professions.  All of our barristers maintain professional indemnity insurance through Bar Mutual, as required by the Bar Council

Professional, licensed access and/or lay clients (as appropriate) may contact chambers to obtain a quotation for legal services. Quotations must be supplied if sufficient information has been provided by the client and the barrister, or another barrister in chambers, would be willing to undertake the legal services. Quotations (whether by reference to a fixed fee, an hourly rate or a combination of both) will be provided within a reasonable time period, and in clear and readily understandable terms.

We welcome all feedback on your experience of doing business with East Anglian Chambers and any suggestions on how we might improve our service. If you have a complaint then please let us know as soon as possible so that we can address your concern. Our complaints procedure can be found by clicking on the Complaints button at the bottom of this page.

Diversity Data
In accordance with regulatory requirements, we collate diversity information at least every three years.  The most recent exercise was carried out in July 2020 and the results have been considered by our management committee.  Due to the number of returns received we are unable to publish detailed information due to the risk that individuals would be identified.

Anti-racism Statement

East Anglian Chambers is committed to being an anti-racist organisation.  This means not simply refraining from carrying out discriminatory acts, but taking pro-active steps to identify, confront and remedy the effects of racism.

We are resolved as an organisation to provide an anti-racist environment within which all of our barristers, pupils and staff can work free from prejudice and discrimination.

We acknowledge that we, as an organisation, need to take positive action to increase racial diversity at the bar and the wider legal system as a whole.

East Anglian Chambers has considered the Bar Standards Board’s Anti-Racist Statement and other published materials and has:

  • Provided all members and staff with comprehensive anti-racism training to improve our own awareness of the issues and create a more inclusive working culture.
  • Established an audit system to identify any barriers to race equality in the application process for pupils and staff.
  • Commenced drafting a new action plan to improve and increase access to East Anglian Chambers. Where underrepresentation exists, to design positive steps to encourage the applications of barristers and staff from different ethnic minority backgrounds.  This includes reviewing our internal policies with the aim of attracting and recruiting a diverse community of barristers, pupils and staff.
  • Expanded the EDI team, with the Chief EDO sitting on the Management Committee.

East Anglian Chambers will keep our progress under review and update our commitments.  We pledge to improve our processes and deliver meaningful action.
