An outstanding set with 'a deep bench of top-drawer practitioners'; our focus is on excellence in our advisory work, advocacy and service.
QEB Hollis Whiteman is regarded both nationally and internationally as a leading set of high-quality advocates and advisers in the fields of corporate and financial crime; serious and general crime; private prosecutions; regulatory and professional discipline and public law. Based in the City of London, chambers boasts a membership of over 60 barristers, many of whom are renowned as experts in their fields and are regularly instructed in leading cases.
Chambers is known for its wide-ranging skills and experience and clients are reassured that it remains the number one choice in its respective fields. With its roots in general crime, QEB Hollis Whiteman made a strategic decision to actively expand its practice into the areas of business crime, professional regulatory work and public law. In 2010, chambers moved to its present base in the City from where its members appear in, and advise on, complex, often high-profile, cases in all its areas of work. The provision of a top-class service to instructing solicitors and clients is at the core of its business strategy and is reflected in the approach that is taken to work, across the board. Members and clerks are flexible and innovative, professional, approachable and highly efficient, to ensure that chambers continues to develop in a rapidly changing and competitive market place.
Excellence is achieved through chambers’ rigorous recruitment and training regime and its unremitting approach to top-quality advocacy at all levels, offering both breadth and depth of expertise and experience. Taking four pupils each year, members of chambers provide in-depth advocacy training for the pupils each week during the first six months of pupillage.
Our advocacy, broad yet focused skill set, experience and genuine expertise coupled with our approachability, set us apart. Our barristers and clerking team, together, offer a professional and flexible service with a focus on building long term relationships.
