Forward Thinking Barristers

Chambers was set up by barristers who believe that a different working model from the traditional English chambers is of greater benefit to our clients in today’s fast moving and digital economy. So at Mercantile Barristers we minimise those traditional practices and strictures that keep the barrister aloof from clients due to our expertise, and adopt methods that give our clients and their professional advisors, direct access to our legal expertise, when they want it. Our clients tell us that this is valuable for their sustained commercial success and we are delighted to be making such a positive contribution.


Practitioners at Mercantile Barristers have decades of commercial, professional and legal practice experience. So quite apart from our legal expertise we have first hand industry and business know-how. This means that we are often on the same wave length with our clients on the practical issues causing their legal need, and we are able to rapidly get to grips with the issues at stake.


We are experts in written and oral advocacy both in the course of a commercial transaction and also in dispute resolution, often involving complex technical and legal issues. Our core skills are in identifying and presenting the central issues in a case and devising creative profitable solutions for our clients. In contentious cases, our skills are deployed in examining and cross-examining witnesses and expert evidence. As such we are able to represent our client’s interests efficiently and present their cases tactfully and forcefully before any tribunal or court.


Our approach to legal practice is always to articulate creative and value-adding solutions for clients whilst delivering timely, efficient and affordable professional services. All clients conduct their affairs within a legal context and Mercantile Barristers’ role is to advise on the conduct of their transactions and affairs in ways that avoid conflict and disputes.

However, should a dispute become inevitable, then our prior engagement would have assured that all the necessary precautions have been taken and mitigating steps adopted. Thus, clients will begin any dispute resolution in a strong position to achieve their desired objectives.

Whether by adjudication, arbitration or litigation members at Mercantile Barristers will adopt a firm, swift and decisive approach to achieve the best possible results for clients within the shortest possible time. We recognise that no two cases are the same, so we will adapt our style to suit the occasion.
