Tenants and Associates

Red Lion Chambers have a variety of recruitment opportunities. We offer full tenancy, associate tenancy, pupillages, mini-pupillages, and 3rd six pupillages.

Chambers are one of the top leading criminal sets in England and Wales. Respected by our peers and judges, we have prosecuted and defended in high-profile cases at home and internationally for 75 years. Boasting strength in depth with quality, expertise and experience at all levels, we are a determined and dedicated partner to our clients.

Chambers welcomes applications from members of the Bar who can demonstrate exceptional quality in business crime, general crime, regulatory law, and professional discipline. Historically we are renowned for being exceptionally strong in the general crime and business crime area.

We have a reputation for excellence and this has helped us attract exceptional barristers from other sets. After successfully diversifying our business, extending our practice to include regulatory law and professional discipline we continue to grow in strength, taking advantage of our in-house expertise across a wider legal spectrum.


Associate Tenancy

Red Lion Chambers have a number of associate tenants. This allows barristers with substantial practices on other circuits to develop a caseload in London and Chelmsford without leaving their principal chambers.

Associate tenants will be formally marketed alongside our full tenants but won’t become full members under our constitution.
