Important announcement


In November, Carmelite Chambers is changing its name to Mountford Chambers

Fresh leadership and management, along with modernisation and growth of chambers practice areas has prompted the name change and business values to herald in a new and significant era for chambers. 

The changes have already started to take effect, and the culmination of our vision and hard work will be launched in November 2021, when we will reveal our new brand identity and website.  

Mountford Chambers derives from Edward William MOUNTFORD, the late 19th/early 20th century architect who designed the Old Bailey in London. The current main building block was designed by Mountford and completed in 1902. Its architecture is recognised and protected as a Grade II listed building, and it was one of Mountford’s final projects before his death in 1908. 

The Mountford name is synonymous with excellence, dependability and longevity – 
values with which chambers closely aligns.
