The 36 Group has recently joined forces with the specialist shipping set Stone Chambers who are known as 36 Stone. The total membership of The 36 Group, now numbers 140 which includes 20 Silks.  We are in the process of moving to prestigious new premises at 4 Field court in Gray’s Inn. As well as welcoming the Stone Chambers team we will also acquire its Singapore office.

The 36 Group comprises 5 specialist practice groups, 36 Commercial, 36 Crime, 36 Family, 36 Public and Human Rights and 36 Stone.

Each practice group has its own Head of Team, its own Practice Manager and its own strategy, business plan and ethos. Almost all practitioners are members of only one of the practice groups and specialise in that area alone.

Chambers has a history stretching back to the 1850s with a common law back ground which chambers has over the past 25 years moved steadily away from and into dedicated specialist practice groups.  Practice/business development managers for the specialist groups assist individual barristers with their practice development. The practice groups are supported by a well funded marketing strategy tailored to each group’s particular needs.

We have a strong reputation for high quality work, across a variety of practice areas. In recent years, for instance, several members have appeared in important Court of Appeal and Supreme Court cases in all practice areas .
