About Great James Street
Great James Street Chambers was founded in 2005 as a niche set, providing advice and advocacy in High Court and appellate matters.
Our members specialise in extradition, the challenge of police warrants, serious crime and complex immigration cases.
We know that individuals seek legal advice at moments of crisis: our ethos as a small set is to take the time to listen and explain. We do not have the burden of an unwieldy corporate structure to distract from our core mission; winning cases for those whom we represent and fighting to protect their rights.
We bought and converted a building close to Gray’s Inn to stay in touch with legal London and to embrace a modern professional approach to the provision of legal advice. We have built a close-knit team of counsel and clerks. Our members are fully committed to direct public access work and we are available to advise and represent you in suitable cases without a solicitor.
Above all, we pride ourselves on being approachable. Please do contact us in confidence via Michael Bazeley or Joel Michaels, our senior clerks, if we can provide any help or guidance about our work at Great James Street Chambers.
