Enterprise Chambers is ranked amongst the leading sets at the Chancery Commercial
Bar in fields spanning from insolvency and company law to real property litigation and general commercial-chancery practice. Chambers has a strong bias towards litigation, and its barristers (from the most junior to the most senior) tend to have a firmly court-centred practice. New tenants have the opportunity to become experts in those fields of litigation, without overly narrowing the breadth of their practice or being forced to choose just one limited field from the outset. Chambers values the ability of its members to approach problems in a manner which is both intellectually rigorous and practically grounded, and prides itself on its unstuffy and client-friendly reputation.
As a long-established but forward thinking set, Chambers comprises 28 members in London plus highly successful branches in Leeds and Newcastle (please note: recruitment for those branches is conducted separately and Chambers is presently ;seeking pupils to be considered for a London tenancy only).
The core areas of Chambers’ practice comprise the following chancery commercial disciplines:
Insolvency and Comany comprising all aspects of the insolvency of companies, partnerships and individuals; directors’ duties; fraudulent and wrongful trading and other misconduct; international and cross-border insolvency; and shareholders’ disputes.
Property including both real property law and landlord and tenant practice. Then former covers issues arising from the sale of land, land registration, mortgages, easements, adverse possession, and property fraud, amongst others.
