Welcome to Serle Court

We are a set of barristers’ chambers offering genuine expertise across a broad range of both chancery and commercial disciplines. We cover the whole range of ‘business’ law, from offshore litigation about the world’s largest companies to domestic advice on probate matters, for both private and professional clients at home and abroad.  We are applauded for handling "matters of the greatest worth and complexity."

Widely recognised as one of the top sets at the English Bar, members of chambers are recommended in 22 practice areas by Chambers UK and 18 practice areas by The Legal 500. We are one of the largest commercial chancery sets, with 68 members, including 28 silks, so we are well placed to offer the right barrister or team for each case. Our Head of Chambers is Alan Boyle QC, and he and all of our barristers and staff are committed to providing exceptional service which is regularly recognised in the directories and at awards ceremonies.

Our website aims to inform potential and existing clients of the wide-ranging expertise on offer at Serle Court and to provide detailed information on our members to help clients identify the right barristers for the particular issues they face. The clerks are always happy to discuss fees and where requested will provide estimates. We hope you find the information you are looking for here, but we appreciate that sometimes a conversation will help, so, if you need any further information or assistance, please feel free to call us on + 44 (0) 20 7242 6105.

Our members generally charge an hourly rate, but brief fees and refreshers are also commonly used for court advocacy. In some cases, members may be prepared to agree a fixed fee, and Conditional Fee Agreements and partial Conditional Fee Agreements.
