Chambers & Partners UK


We are a commercial set with a difference.  The focus of our work is on challenges to the exercise of State power in the commercial arena.  Whether acting in a competition case, a challenge to telecommunications regulation, a corporate tax dispute or a cross-border financial services matter, the question is usually: does the State have the power to act in the way that it has?  That question may involve the application of as many as three systems of public law control: domestic law, EU law and international human rights law, areas in which Monckton Chambers is a market leader

We offer broad experience in judicial review challenges before the Administrative Court and other courts and tribunals (including the Competition Appeal Tribunal, the Information Tribunal and the Court of First Instance).  22 members are appointed to the Attorney General's 'A', 'B' and 'C' Panel of Counsel.  Our members' expertise is particularly sought after in connection with judicial review claims arising in commercial regulatory context across a broad range of industry sectors.
