The Legal 500 recognises Fenners as the leading barristers’ chambers in the East of England. From our base in Cambridge we work regularly throughout the East of England, the northern Home Counties and London. We travel to courts anywhere in England and Wales. Some members have international practices.

We offer expertise in eight main areas of law: commercial law; crime; employment; family law; personal injury; property law; probate & inheritance; and public law.

We work for solicitors as referral lawyers, for fellow professionals by way of licensed access and for individuals and organisations through the direct access scheme. As well as fulfilling our core services- providing legal advice and advocacy- we mediate, arbitrate and adjudicate disputes.

Each barrister at Fenners practises as a committed individual lawyer- not as part of a large law firm- but by working together we offer a breadth and depth of legal advice and advocacy unrivalled in the East. Find out more about how barristers work together. Every barrister has their own page, telling you more about them and what they do.

We believe our fees are fair and transparent.
