Mountford Chambers has, as its core values, a commitment to protecting human rights, civil liberties, and access to justice. The significance of public law proceedings, such as inquests, inquiries, and judicial reviews in ensuring accountability and veracity has never been more important.

The synergy between chambers values and the growth in public law cases has led to a burgeoning reputation for our barristers who practice in this field.

Mountford barristers’ strength lies in the breadth of criminal law expertise that practitioners have. From prison law to terrorism, HSE prosecutions to military law, we have a barrister to suit every type of public law case.
