Chancery Chambers is one of the more diversified law firms in the Caribbean. Based in Barbados, it provides a full complement of legal services to national and international clients. Its' pillars of practice are international business law, environmental law, real estate law and the law relating to charities domestically and internationally.
The firm is regularly trusted with client referrals from its strong professional relationships and its international legal networks such as LAW, Terralex and Globalaw. The firm's stature is enhanced by its substantial public and private sector experience at the national and international level, and its own very strong charitable focus.
The firm is developing beyond the established core competencies. In addition to the structured expansion programme for the existing practice areas, there is a dedicated corporate services division which is responsible for all aspects of corporate administration and management. Further the firm proposes to introduce a bespoke contentious business practice (civil litigation, arbitration and other alternative dispute resolution) in the near future, but in the interim has engaged specialised litigation counsel where necessary.
Although independently focused on their particular areas of expertise, the firm's professionals work collectively in cross-disciplinary practice groups to access information and advice to the advantage of clients and the development of the firm's expertise. The firm's mission remains to provide personalised service with a high degree of professional competence so as to be of substantial value to clients in the resolution of complex matters.
