Mountford Chambers move to new premises – 13 Ely Place, London


Mountford Chambers are delighted to announce that as of today (Tuesday 7th June 2022) we have moved to new premises at 13 Ely Place, London. This follows an extensive renovation and ongoing fit-out of this historic Georgian terrace.

Chambers’ new premises boasts over 1800 square feet of space across 5 floors which have been transformed as part of significant renovation work to offer a high-quality environment that supports modern hybrid working. The new state-of-the-art chambers includes, a boardroom, newly refurbished conference rooms, flexible meeting rooms and dedicated phone and video facilities for virtual hearings.

Ely Place is situated in the heart of legal London, just off High Holborn and the Inns of Court. It is a very short walk from the Farringdon station transport hub, and Chancery Lane station. The picturesque street is also home to a 13th century Catholic Church St Ethelreda, and Ye Olde Mitre, which is considered to be London’s most hidden pub. 

Senior Clerk, Ben Heaviside says, “This building re-affirms Chambers’ intention to be a leader in the post-COVID, modern world. The building is cost effective, reinforces the quality of our service to clients, and offers ample room for our current membership and beyond. The layout has been designed with the longevity of our plans in mind and we are delighted to have secured this permanent home following our re-launch” 

Head of Chambers, Chris Henley KC says, “Ely Place is a beautiful building and provides a working environment of the highest quality, in which we can learn, share, lead and grow. It is a strong statement of our ambition, and our values of excellence, inclusivity, and mutual support. This move is the second major development in Chambers’ life, following on from the rebrand to Mountford Chambers in November 2021 and is testament to our ongoing success and confidence in our collective future. We look forward to welcoming you.”
