About us

Linenhall Chambers was formed in 2011 by the merger of the two largest barristers chambers in Chester, each of which had a history going back for 60 years. Now with over 60 barristers and a specialist and experienced support staff chambers offers expertise in the following areas of law: Prosecution and Defence Crime, Family, Property, Commercial, Probate & Inheritance, Personal Injury, Housing, Regulatory, Employment and Court of Protection & Mental Health. Individual members also offer expertise in a number of other areas of law including Education Law, Costs and Immigration. We work for solicitors as referral lawyers, for other professional clients by way of Licenced Access and for individuals and organisations through the Direct Access scheme. In addition we mediate and arbitrate. From our base in Chester Linenhall Chambers primarily serves the law firms, legal departments, public authorities and bodies, businesses and individuals in Cheshire, the North West, North and Mid Wales as well as in Shropshire, Staffordshire, Herefordshire, the Midlands and Yorkshire. We are regularly instructed by professional and lay clients from across England and Wales who have matters proceeding in the localities we cover. We have a long-established tradition of providing legal services for Wales and many of our members are able to provide advice and conduct cases in Welsh.
