Red Lion Chambers Update

We are committed to continuing to provide the very highest standards of service whilst minimising risk to clients, staff and barristers. Counsel remain available to accept work as normal.
At all times we operate in a manner consistent with Government and Judicial guidance which we continually monitor.
Chambers uses the latest IT solutions which ensure Counsel and our clerking / administration teams operate as usual. To minimise risk in the current situation alternatives to face-to-face conferences between clients and barristers are readily available. Please contact our clerking team who will be able to arrange audio and audio-visual conferences at your convenience [clerks@18rlc.co.uk].
Regrettably, we will no longer accept deliveries to our office buildings until further notice. If you need to deliver documents to Counsel and are unable to do so electronically, please contact our clerking team who will advise as to the most suitable address for delivery.
We would be grateful if you could make all payments to us by BACS using the bank details on the fee notes you have been sent. Please do not send cheques to our offices in the post.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries or if there is anything that we can assist you with. We look forward to continuing to work with you.
We wish you good health and thank you for your continued support.
