What our clients are saying

Highly recommend TBG Employment Barristers! The range of Barristers (for employment law) the Chambers offer as well as the Clerk support is excellent, reliable and good service all round! The Chambers will go above and beyond to try and assist you, where possible of course.

Qurra-Tulain Amir

Senior Lawyer, Dentons

It’s not just the breadth in their barristers’ range of specialisms, their response times have been almost immediate and they deal with those urgent, and often unusual, needs that crop up from time to time in a way that makes them a very big part of the solution to the problem.

David Buckle

Gunner Cooke

The online booking system is easy, fast and efficient and there's a really great selection of specialist barristers.
