Maitland Chambers is one of the leading sets of barristers' chambers in the UK

Based in London's Lincoln's Inn, we offer legal advice and advocacy of the highest quality both domestically and internationally. We are consistently ranked as a leading set in all our areas of expertise across the civil fraud, commercial, corporate, insolvency, real estate, financial, chancery and related fields. We appear across a full range of UK civil courts and tribunals including the Supreme Court and Privy Council as well as in Caribbean, Asian and other jurisdictions.

With 25 Queen's Counsel and 44 juniors, we have the strength and depth to provide representation and cross-disciplinary expertise across the whole range of matters, from a junior for a relatively modest claim to a team with the ability and experience to tackle the largest, most urgent and most complex cases in ways which are comprehensive, imaginative, efficient and effective.

We are very pleased to announce the appointment of Siward Atkins as Queen's Counsel in the latest silk list.
