23 Mar 2020

In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and following guidelines from the World Health Organisation and the British Government, we continue to monitor the situation closely.

The health and safety of our clients, members staff and other visitors to our offices continues to be our priority at this time.

For this reason Monckton Chambers’ premises will be closed from the evening of Tuesday 24th March.

Business continues

As a result of a steady investment in technology and a comprehensive business continuity plan, Monckton Chambers can continue to operate effectively remotely. We remain fully operational and able to support clients on all matters.

Videos and calls

Thanks to video conferencing technology we can host online meetings of all sizes for our clients and contacts. Please contact the Clerks to arrange.

Electronic communication where possible

Please consider sending all instructions and documents electronically to the clerks. This will be the most efficient under the circumstances.

Where hard copies have to be sent to Chambers, please liaise in advance with the relevant clerk and member to arrange delivery directly to the barrister concerned.

We recommend communication with members, at least initially, by email. All our members have direct email access on their website profiles. See Barristers.

Any questions

We will be very happy to answer any queries you have about current and new instructions.
