KBWcourtparaKBW Chambers is a forward-thinking and efficient multi-disciplinary set which attracts high quality work and has strength in depth across a number of specialist practice areas.

Due to the large volume of work within Chambers and our desire to expand our team of able practitioners we are eager to recruit new tenants of ability across our practice areas, although we encourage applications from senior criminal practitioners in particular.

Every application to join Chambers is judged on merit alone and will be dealt with fairly, quickly and in the strictest confidence.

There are three stages in the application process:

  1. All applications are considered by up to three people (the head of the Management Committee, the head of the relevant team, and the Head of Chambers) to determine whether the application should proceed;
  2. If they decide that it should, the head of team will consult with all of the members of that team;
  3. A consensus decision will be arrived at and conveyed to the applicant.

Equality and Diversity

KBW aims to be an inclusive organisation where clients, members, pupils and staff are treated with respect and dignity.

All aspects of Chambers recruitment is conducted in accordance with the Bar Standard Board’s Fair Recruitment good practice and we are committed to ensuring that all applications are treated fairly irrespective of age, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation, disability, gender reassignment, and sex.

Applications for tenancy from members of communities traditionally under represented at the Bar are positively encouraged.

Should you wish to make a formal application to join us, or wish to discuss doing so, please email PaulCleasby@kbwchambers.com. All contact with us will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
