We recognise the efforts of our barristers and reward them for the contribution they make to our success through a range of financial, lifestyle and wellbeing benefits not found in traditional chambers.


Our barristers receive a guaranteed basic salary paid monthly, plus an additional monthly salary payment based on a percentage of receipts above a threshold. The percentage increases as receipts increase. There’s no aged debt to worry about and all barristers have access to live financial performance data – so they can track their progress and manage their workflows effectively.


Our barristers benefit from 30 days paid holiday per year, in addition to bank holidays. We also offer unlimited unpaid leave. Up to 5 days of paid holiday can be carried forward or sold back to chambers.

Flexible Working

We encourage flexible working. Every barrister has the option to work from home one day each week and additional working from home days can be arranged, if required. Fancy a late start, an extended lunch or an early finish from time to time? That’s not a problem either.

Sabbatical Leave

We recognise that in addition to having successful and rewarding professional careers, our people have individual personal and development needs. That’s why, after practising for 5 years, our barristers can take a period of up to 6 weeks paid sabbatical leave, in addition to their annual leave (2 weeks of which can also be bolted on). Want to go travelling or pursue an outside interest for a couple of months? We’ll support you to do that.

Maternity / paternity / parental leave policy

Unlike traditional chambers, we offer our barristers a comprehensive maternity, paternity and shared parental leave package.  Our maternity policy guarantees full salary for a period of 6 months (26 weeks) after 2 years.  We also encourage flexible working arrangements that allow new parents to continue practising at the Bar.


We believe that our barristers should have the latest technology at their disposal, so each barrister has access to a dedicated Apple iMac and an Apple MacBook Pro notebook, which we maintain and update for them.

Professional Costs

Chambers pays the practising certificate fees of all our barristers and they’re also covered under our firm wide professional indemnity insurance. We also cover the costs of CPD courses attended as part of both the new practitioner and established practitioner programmes. Our barristers benefit from our chambers membership of ILPA and there are no subscription fees or textbook costs to worry about. We subscribe to several online legal resources and a budget is available for the purchase of practitioner texts.


Unless they choose to opt out, all our barristers are automatically enrolled into our workplace pension scheme provided by Aviva. A percentage of their basic salary is paid into the pension scheme and we also make a contribution each and every month.

Private Medical Insurance

All our barristers have access to our firm-wide private medical insurance scheme through Vitality, ensuring that the cost of private treatment for any medical problems is covered.

Additional Benefits

Our barristers are also eligible for a number of benefits to help them outside work, including interest free season ticket and travelcard loans, discounted gym membership, a childcare voucher scheme and a cycle to work scheme.
