No5 Small Banner

Throughout our 100-year history, we have established a reputation for breaking new ground and continue to be regarded as a progressive and forward-thinking set, maintaining our success in traditional sectors of law whilst offering specialist advice and representation at the cutting edge of newly evolving areas.

With Offices in Birmingham, London, Bristol and Leicester we are well placed to provide experts at all levels throughout the UK and overseas.

We are one of the largest sets of barristers’ chambers in the UK with over 250 members including 36 Queen’s Counsel. 

Our growth and reputation can be attributed to a structured recruitment process with quality of tenants, rather than quantity, at its core. 

Our forward-thinking approach and flexibility to change to market needs has enabled us to attract well-known and respected professionals to the Bar, including partners from leading solicitors firms and senior members of other professions, for example; a former neurosurgeon, dentist, doctors, engineers and members of the armed forces, all of whom have brought new skills to the respective groups they have joined. 

We are able to accept work on a public access basis and have invested a great deal of time and resources to ensure that our services are easily accessible to the general public, offering clients direct and immediate access to the wealth of expertise offered by our members.

Why should you instruct us?

At No5, we believe that you, the client, should come first and our members will work closely with you at all times to provide you with the best legal advice and advocacy.

We have the expertise to provide advice and representation across the full spectrum of the law.

We pride ourselves in providing a service that our clients describe as exceptional. A large number of our clients have instructed us for many years, which is a true reflection of the level of service we provide.

What makes us different?

We are innovative in our thinking and in recent years have developed links with India, Dubai, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Trinidad, Turkey, Hong Kong, Thailand and mainland China. One of the key components of our strategy is to offer our services not just throughout the UK but to the global market.

We are friendly and approachable, enabling us to provide each of our clients with a personal and professional service. We can provide counsel who are recognised nationally as leaders in their field, ensuring you receive the best quality legal advice and representation at all times.
