Chambers was established in 1975 in South Square, Gray’s Inn, from which it quickly grew in size and reputation. In 1991, we moved to 3 Gray’s Inn Square before finally arriving at 25 Bedford Row in 2002.
Former members of chambers include three circuit judges: HHJ Philip Statman, HHJ Sylvia de Bertodano, and HHJ Geoffrey Payne.
Rock Tansey QC was succeeded in 2009 by Paul Mendelle KC and George Carter-Stephenson KC who were then subsequently joined by Jeremy Dein KC in 2014. They led chambers for 9 years until the appointments of Tyrone Smith KC and Nicola Howard KC as Joint Heads of Chambers.
Their reputation for excellence is demonstrated by involvement in almost every recent major serious trial, whether in fraud, terrorism or general crime.
