In these very challenging times, Serle Court is committed to protecting the health and wellbeing of all its barristers, staff, clients and friends of chambers.

We understand that this is a worrying time for all businesses, but we wanted to let you know that Serle Court is determined to continue providing the highest quality of services and advice you may need.

During this period of lockdown our barristers and staff are working remotely. We will continue business meetings through video conferencing and will continue to take into account the guidance from government and Public Health England.

Serle Court is a set that prides itself for having a forward-thinking and modern approach to technology, enabling our workforce to work remotely while providing the same high levels of service from our team. Members are well-used to working remotely and we therefore anticipate that disruption should be kept to the minimum possible in the circumstances.

While we will miss the face to face meetings with you in chambers and the social interaction both in and outside of chambers, we look forward to turning this challenging time into an opportunity to continue interacting with you through our well-developed telephone and video conference systems.
