Welcome to 2 New Street Chambers
2 New Street Chambers is one of the oldest sets of Chambers on the Midland Circuit. We have a long-established tradition of providing a positive, enthusiastic and professional service. Members of 2 New Street provide specialist civil and family law advocacy and advice. Chambers is situated in a beautiful part of the city, an area steeped in legal history, a stone’s throw away from the discovery site of King Richard III and the cathedral.
Members of Chambers provide legal representation at courts across the country. Furthermore, Chambers have dedicated conference facilities to enable consultations to be conducted within Chambers. Alternatively, if it is more convenient to professional and lay clients, Members of Chambers can attend conferences not only at New Street Chambers but at instructing solicitors’ offices.
Members of Chambers also provide direct access professional services to the public on a case by case basis.
New Contractual Terms
As from 31st January 2013 the terms upon which members of Chambers will accept instructions from Solicitors (or other persons authorised and regulated by the Law Society or the SRA), in privately funded cases are changing and will be as set out in The (New) Standard Contractual Terms for the Supply of Legal Services by Barristers to Authorised Persons 2012, unless alternative terms have been agreed in particular cases. The new terms can be found here.
