The 36 Group is a dynamic set. The major restructuring of the set a few years ago along business lines has proven successful and our reputation continues to grow nationally and internationally. Our barristers include more than 20 Silks, and a large number of arbitrators and judicial appointees.

In 2019 we moved to high spec new premises in Gray’s Inn, London including a suite of facilities suitable for arbitration, mediation and video conferencing to reflect our increased levels of private dispute resolution and international work. We also have offices in Singapore.

Led by an energetic Executive Board and well supported by practice / business development managers, the set has experienced burgeoning work across a number of practice areas in recent times.

We are organised into five main practice groups: 36 Family, 36 Crime, 36 Employment & Property, 36 Public and Human Rights and 36 Stone (International Trade and Shipping). Within these groups there are further areas of specialism.

Each operates as though it were an individual set of Chambers, with their own team heads, practice and business development managers and clerking teams. But real advantage is presented by cross referrals / cross selling across the different practice groups and the ability to share expertise.

Would you like to be part of our success?
