Scope of Our Work

We act in all areas of Housing Law, and at every level of seniority.

Direct Access

We are direct access qualified barristers and may provide advice or advocacy services direct to clients, without the expense of having to go through a solicitor as a first step- please see our separate page for Direct Public Access.

Geographical Presence and Accessibility

36 Group is a London-based set of Chambers with a strong connection with London, the Midlands, and the South-East, and we are most active in these areas. However, our members can be consulted by videoconferencing to reduce cost and travel time, and we travel to provide high quality representation to clients anywhere in England and Wales.


Our members are able and willing to conduct training seminars by arrangement for solicitors, local authorities and other public bodies.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

The 36 Group has a panel of accredited mediators and arbitrators who may be able to assist the parties settle disputes without the need to resort to the courts and incur the expenses legal action might entail. Click here for more information.

Support Team

Our barristers are supported by a dedicated team of Clerks and Fees Clerks, who can be seen on the Chambers staff page.
