As a dedicated Chancery set of chambers the barristers at Ten Old Square undertake a very wide range of cases.  Our specialist advocates predominantly practice in the Chancery and Commercial Divisions of the High Court in London and its provincial registries, but we also provide representation at every level of civil tribunal in England and Wales including the appellate courts and in courts in many offshore jurisdictions.

Our barristers have considerable practical experience in the ways in which their specialisms regularly overlap with others; we can offer individuals who are skilled in areas of law that fall outside the usual scope of Chancery law.

The full extent of how any barrister in Chambers could help you is always best discussed with our Senior Clerk Keith Plowman or his colleague Marc Schofield, who will provide guidance on who the ideal choice of barrister will be, their availability and the cost of instructing them.

All the barristers at Ten Old Square are members of the Chancery Bar Association and many are members of the Property Bar Association as well as STEP, COMBAR, ACTAPS and the APP.
