1 Chancery Lane launches its free Legal Advice Helpline for legal professionals



We are delighted to announce the launch of our new Free Legal Advice Helpline for legal professionals.

We recognise that many of our clients are facing unprecedented challenges dealing with unexpected legal and procedural issues whilst also remote working and, in many cases, home schooling. We would like to support you at this difficult time and, as a result, are offering a free legal advice helpline to assist you with any legal queries you may have.

The helpline covers our core practice areas:

  • Medical Law, including Inquests
  • Personal Injury
  • Professional Liability
  • Property, Chancery & Commercial
  • Public Sector & Human Rights
  • Travel Law & Cross Border Claims

It is our expectation that your query should be capable of being dealt with during a ten minute telephone conversation and will not require the barrister to consider any documents. Those members of Chambers assisting with the Helpline will offer to call you for a brief discussion over the telephone to assist with your query.

If it is clear that the issue requires further consideration and cannot be dealt with appropriately during a Helpline call, we would be happy to discuss with you other options for legal advice.

The Helpline is currently limited to 4pm on 30 April 2020. At that time we will review the service and consider whether to extend it if the current lockdown continues.

If you have a query you’d like some help with, please complete the enquiry form and one of our barristers will come back to you on the same day to discuss it with you further.
