We welcome enquiries from lawyers with established practices who are interested in practising from Monckton Chambers. We are continuing to grow both in terms of the number of instructions we receive and overall revenues, and we are always willing to consider whether a particular practitioner would be a good fit with us. In recent years we have been joined by:
- Barristers moving their existing practices from other sets of chambers
- Experienced lawyers who have previously practised in law firms or public service
- Established advocates from other jurisdictions who wish to practice as self-employed barristers in England and Wales
- Legal academics with strong established reputations in one or more of our core practice areas
We are happy to consider enquiries from experienced lawyers who do not yet hold a practising certificate but who expect to do so within a short timeframe or after completing an abbreviated period of pupillage.
Prospective applicants for tenancy may be offered the opportunity to visit Chambers for informal discussions with the Senior Clerk or members of our Management Committee before deciding whether to apply. All applications are considered individually and on merit under an established process. Applicants will be asked, as part of that process, to produce a business plan and provide references.
Any enquiries about tenancy should be made in writing to the Head of Chambers and will be treated in strictest confidence.
