The areas of work in which we have particular expertise, experience and excellence.
Deka Chambers is a leading national and international common law Set offering some of the finest advocates and best performing barristers across its practice areas. Comprising over 110 barristers, including 14 market leading Silks, it is one of the biggest common law sets in the country.
Deka Chambers represents the union of two hugely respected leading Sets: 9 Gough Chambers and 1 Chancery Lane. ‘Deka’ is Greek for the number 10 (9+1) and reflects the coming together of a wealth of expertise from the formidable roots of the two legacy Sets. The decision to break with convention, with most Sets being named after their location, demonstrates the ambition of Deka Chambers as a forward thinking, inclusive and modern organisation, created to meet the changing needs of the legal market. With a service centred around a sophisticated understanding of the different needs of its clients, a community of specialists with the range, scale and depth to lead the most complex cases and a collaborative ethos, we offer personal service, but at a scale that enables greater range and efficiency.
Our clients include solicitors, local government, central government, corporate bodies, individuals and government agencies.
We provide a wide range of legal services in a range of practice areas including civil fraud; clinical negligence & healthcare; commercial, chancery & property; court of protection; credit hire; crime & fraud; family law; inquests & inquiries; personal injury; police law; professional negligence; public sector & human rights; regulatory & disciplinary; and travel & cross border claims.
Members of Chambers frequently appear in high value and significant cases in tribunals ranging from the Supreme Court, Court of Appeal and High Court to the County Court, Crown Court, tribunals and before professional disciplinary panels.
We also have a team of experienced mediators and arbitrators to assist in the resolution of disputes.
Client service and teamwork are the cornerstones of all that we do. We recruit and nurture the strongest and broadest array of legal talent and expertise necessary to meet our clients’ needs in an ever-changing and fast-paced legal market.
