Contacting Kings Chambers
As of 6 January 2021 in accordance with the guidelines issued by the UK Government our premises in Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham will be closed for all but essential purposes only. We will not be able to host clients in any of our premises during this time.
We continue to request that all instructions be sent to us electronically and that payments for fees are remitted electronically. At this time we are unable to accept delivery of hard copy papers or other items.
The main phone numbers for each of our locations are active and you can also reach our clerking and support teams via their direct dial numbers and via email which are available on our website.
Our members are fully enabled to provide services remotely and they continue to conduct hearings, conferences and provide advice.
In addition, our clerks are fully versed with the various remote platform requirements of the relevant courts and can advise and assist our clients accordingly. We can set up telephone or video conferences although we expect and understand that clients may prefer to do that themselves.

We have specialist teams of members who act as arbitrators and mediators, mechanisms that are suitable for alternative dispute resolution, and are readily adaptable to remote engagement online.
