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. 

The Firm’s original pillars of practice are international commercial law, property law and charities law. The Firm’s strong professional relationships are enhanced by its participation in international legal networks such as LAW, Terralex and Globalaw. The Firm’s stature is enhanced by its own very strong charitable focus.

The Firm has developed beyond the established core competencies. In addition to the structured expansion programme for the existing legal practice areas, there is a bespoke litigation practice (civil litigation, arbitration and other alternative dispute resolution) operating as Chancery Advocates.In addition there is a dedicated corporate services division, Chancery Corporate Services Limited which is responsible for all aspects of corporate administration and management.

In association with the Caribbean Court of Justice, other legal and justice officers, international organisations and identified professionals, the Firm is pioneering efforts in justice reform for Barbados and the region, through involvement and support of APEX, the Arbitration and Mediation Court of the Caribbean, and efforts towards the digitization programmes for courts and public registries. 

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.
