Leicester’s Specialist Family and Civil Law Barristers Chambers

Welcome to 2 New Street Chambers

With a long-established tradition of providing a positive, enthusiastic and professional service, 2 New Street Chambers is one of the oldest and most reputable sets of Barristers Chambers in Leicester and indeed on the Midland Circuit.

Providing expert legal representation for both direct access clients and solicitors, the barristers at 2 New Street Chambers offer specialist civil and family law advocacy and advice and often appear in courts in Leicester and 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.

2 New Street Chambers is located in a beautiful part of Leicester, an area steeped in legal history and a stone’s throw away from the discovery site of King Richard III as well as the historic cathedral.

Members of Chambers also provide direct access professional services to the public on a case by case basis.

New Street Chambers Hits a Hat-Trick at the LLS Awards 2019
New Street Chambers is overjoyed and extremely proud to announce that it produced an unprecedented clean sweep of possible awards at this year’s Leicestershire Law Society Awards night.

Held at Leicester’s Athena, the Taj Mahal themed evening will go down as one of the most memorable in New Street’s recent history. Chamber’s not only won Chambers of the Year, but Miss Hannah Fountain won Barrister of the Year, and Ben Leuty won Support Staff Team Member of the Year.

Being up against such talented and esteemed competition it was no mean feat, and one that won’t be forgotten any time soon.

New Street would like to thank all of those involved in organising such a great event, with a special thank you to Bushra Ali, President of the Leicestershire Law Society, and Iqrah Fayyaz without whom, the event would not have been possible. Thank you.
