Wilberforce Chambers is committed to ensuring we continue to function as effectively as possible, whilst placing the safety and well-being of our members, staff and clients are at the forefront of our ongoing business continuity strategy. To that end, we are following the measures identified in our external risk assessment and are continuing to monitor and follow HM Government and HMCTS guidance.
We now have a team of clerks working on site full-time and our front of house and main reception is also fully open and operational, with the remaining staff members working from home and fully contactable. All of our contact details (phone numbers, email addresses or otherwise) are the same and are available to view on our website via the link above.
We are able to accommodate face-to-face meetings if they are absolutely necessary and are in line with HM Government guidelines and our internal social distancing protocols. Above and beyond that we are continuing to utilise agile-working strategies – such as video-calling via all of the main platforms – to ensure that our focus on high-quality client service is preserved.
If you require any assistance or have questions about the temporary measures we have in place, please contact:
Nicholas Luckman (Practice Director)
John Treacy (Executive Director – for non-client / operational enquiries)
Mark Rushton (Head Practice Manager)

We wish our clients, colleagues and friends of chambers the very best during this difficult period.
