Together we are the 36 Group

We are one of the UK’s leading barristers’ chambers specialising in International Trade and Shipping, Family, Public & Human Rights, and Crime.

With over 150 leading barristers, mediators and arbitrators, including 15 King’s Counsel, our specialist practice groups offer greater depth of expertise, providing exceptional legal advice and advocacy. Together we are united in our shared focus – achieving the best possible outcome for our clients.

Based at Gray’s Inn, our members are involved in some of the most cutting-edge litigation and entrusted to act in ground-breaking cases shaping the law. Our management team is also leading the way, combining the latest technology and innovative approaches to running our chambers while actively promoting diversity and mental wellbeing across the Bar.

We assist law firms, businesses, public sector organisations and private individuals from the UK and our operations in Singapore and Hong Kong. But no matter who you are or where you are, our approach is the same – responsive, client-focused and friendly.

As one of the most diverse sets in the Bar, we are committed to making the profession accessible to everybody, regardless of background. We offer a ground-breaking annual advocacy competition, are part of the 10,000 Interns Programme and support the Bar Council’s Wellbeing at the Bar initiative.

We are proud of the work we do, our results and the standards we set for ourselves.


The 36 Group is a dynamic set with a reputation that continues to grow nationally and internationally. We have a proud history of inclusivity and diversity and seek to encourage the widest diversity of applications from all highly talented applicants at any stage of their career. Find out more about:
