Our Business and Property barristers frequently appear in all levels of tribunal: from the County Court to the Supreme Court. Our barristers travel nationwide and are happy to attend conferences in solicitors’ offices, by telephone, video-link, or in our newly refurbished conference rooms in Chambers. 

Cobden House barristers offer a wide range of experience: from those of over 30 years’ call to more recently qualified junior barristers. Individual barristers retain particular specialities and areas of interest, as to which please see their individual profiles or ask our clerks to recommend a barrister with particular expertise. 

We have invested heavily in IT and have the ability to conduct conferences, hearings, mediations and joint settlement meetings remotely where necessary. We embrace paperless working wherever possible.

Some of our Business and Property barristers accept Direct Public Access instructions. All offer seminars and workshops for solicitors, speaking on a wide range of subjects. Again, please ask our clerks for more details. 

Our clerks will happily provide you with an estimate or quote, no matter how complex your query
