Founded in Chichester with further offices in London and Southampton, we are one of the leading sets in the South with consistent accreditation’s in the Legal 500.
We offer a full range of advocacy, advisory, drafting and alternative dispute resolution services to our clients, who include national and regional law firms, boutique law firms, high street solicitors, businesses, statutory bodies, local authorities and high net worth individuals.
Our barristers are specialists within their chosen fields, and appear in all levels of tribunal including the High Court, Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court.
Our model is to provide specialist, agile and client-focused legal services, understanding our clients’ needs and developing strong relationships and delivering in an approachable, collegiate manner.
Our success is based upon our core principles.
Local excellence, high standards
We offer our clients high standards of service and representation, and have appeared in many leading and significant cases. We deliver our service with a personable, dedicated feel. We are agile, approachable and able to react to our clients’ needs whenever and howsoever they arise.
Exceeding the brief
It is a cornerstone of our success that we are committed to understanding and achieving our clients’ goals. We enjoy our work, and strive to exceed expectations.
Our aim is to be one of the leading sets in the country in our chosen practice areas, and to build relationships that endure through the changes and challenges that our clients face. We want to be the first people our clients turn to for support with their most important and challenging work.
Investing in talent
We are only as good as the sum of our parts. We recruit and develop people who can deliver to a high standard, and are capable of handling challenging work in a manner consistent with our ethos.
A team effort
Delivering effective legal services is a team effort both within and outside Chambers. We are approachable and believe in a collaborative approach.
We want to give our clients the best opportunity of achieving their goals. To do this, we believe that we must add value to everything that we do: we must use our knowledge, technical expertise and experience to enable our clients to make informed, astute judgements and formulate effective strategies; we must provide robust representation and we must deliver our services efficiently and effectively.
Transparency, integrity and clear communication lie at the heart of how we deliver our services. From our initial conversation to the end of our engagement, we observe the highest personal, professional and ethical standards.
We operate as a team, and consider our clients to be part of that team. We invest the time to understand and identify our clients’ needs, goals and drivers, and then deploy effective, specialist advice, support and representation to what are often complex, time-pressured and stressful situations.
Time estimates are provided at the outset of the instructions, and we strive to provide real time updates and progress reports on request.
Members have their own dedicated clerk to ensure confidentiality and the interests of all of the parties are not compromised.
Pallant Chambers and its barristers are regulated by the Bar Standards Board. You can access the Bar Standards Board’s register of barristers who are authorised to practise in England and Wales on its website, here.
In is essential to us that we ensure that the service that is provided, whether by a member of chamber or a member of staff, is of the highest quality.
