One of the largest sets in the UK, chambers offers wide experience in domestic and international crime, including complex business crime and fraud, drugs cases and murder. Expertise is also provided in confiscation, extradition, prison law, mental health, licensing, common law matters and family law.
Charter Chambers was established in July 2001 by the members of Dr Johnson’s Chambers and former members of Cardinal Chambers. Stephen Solley QC, the head of chambers, is a former chair of the Bar Human Rights Committee. The set has expanded to accommodate 11 QCs and nearly 50 junior counsel. Its ethos is friendly, young and ambitious.
With its wide range of experience and expertise, members are able to meet the many and varied demands of the rapidly changing modern legal world. Chambers is exceptionally well placed to handle the challenges presented by the new human rights legislation and has a wealth of experience in this field, including bringing cases before the courts at the Hague and Strasbourg.
Charter Chambers is committed to providing a high-quality service to all its clients in an approachable and effective way. To maintain these standards, it has established criminal and civil teams to facilitate the communication and exchange of knowledge, ideas and experience.
In Summer 2006, chambers moved to its own building in John Street in central London. This provides a relaxed yet professional atmosphere for clients and enhanced working conditions for members and staff. All the facilities necessary for the smooth running of a busy legal practice are available, including large conference rooms with audio and video equipment, a fully computerised law library, email and internet access and voice mail and fax facilities.
The large criminal team offers extensive experience in domestic and international crime. Members of chambers have recently appeared in many high-profile murder and drugs cases. The criminal team also has expertise in war crimes tribunal work, Privy Council death penalty appeals and all aspects of prison law.
Chambers has established a business crime unit in response to the increasing regulation and criminal liability faced by businesses, ranging from anti-competitive agreements to manslaughter, and prosecution of directors for the action or inaction of their companies. The unit also deals with the growing complexity of proceeds of crime issues. It provides advice and representation in corporate criminal liability and criminal fraud, regulatory proceedings, disciplinary tribunals, money laundering prosecutions, recovery of the proceeds of crime in both the criminal and civil spheres, director’s disqualification, civil fraud and fraud prevention, asset tracing and recovery, compliance issues, compulsory winding up, and personal and corporate insolvency.
