    As the longest established Chambers in Teesside, Fountain Chambers has built a reputation as one of the leading multi-disciplinary Chambers in the North East. Over the last 30 years we have expanded steadily to meet the demand for specialist advocates in all areas of law to serve Teesside and the North East. Our team of highly regarded barristers offer significant expertise and experience in the fields of criminal, civil, family and housing law.

    Fountain Chambers' professional excellence is underlined by its distinguished history of members being appointed to the judiciary: Judge A.N. Briggs, Judge L. Spittle, Judge P.J.B. Armstrong and Judge S.J. Ashurst; an Immigration Judge and the former Attorney General of the Turks and Caicos Islands. In addition, many of our members are Recorders and our recent head of Chambers, Mr Timothy Roberts Q.C., made history as the first appointed Queen's Counsel in Teesside.

    We have flexible teams experienced in civil, family, housing and criminal law delivering the high quality of service our professional clients have come to expect, be they local solicitors, government agencies or by way of Direct Access. The recognised experience of the senior practitioners is drawn upon by our junior members. 

    In addition members of Chambers are qualified as family mediators and members of the Family Mediators' Association. They provide mediation services through Fountain Mediation which holds a Legal Aid Agency contract to provide publicly funded mediation. 

    At Fountain Chambers we know that the most important element of our success is our high level of customer service. Our clients return to us because of the quality of our barristers and the dedicated administrative team which supports them. This commitment to client focused procedures and strategies resulted from Fountain Chambers being the first set of Chambers in the UK to secure Quality Mark accreditation without being 'passported through' the procedure.
