Becket Chambers names board

General Common Law

Our civil practice group has a wide spread of experience ranging from general common law contract and tort disputes to chancery matters. The Common Law Group includes Barristers who practice in other fields, incorporating the advantages of a multi-disciplinary set of Chambers, as well as exclusively civil practitioners.

Within the field of property litigation, there is particular strength and depth in the areas of trusts of land and inheritance, which are closely allied to the family group’s practice.

We offer expert advice and representation in all areas of general civil law. Our primary skills lie in the resolution of disputes through litigation, arbitration or alternative dispute solving procedures.

Equally important is the role we play in helping our clients to avoid disputes in the first place or prevent them happening through careful planning, drafting and the giving of specialist advice.

We recognise the importance of providing value to our clients and our Clerks will gladly discuss fees in advance of instructions.

Areas of specialisation include:


  • Building Disputes
  • Breach of Contract
  • Fraud
  • Misrepresentation
  • Specific Performance

Professional Negligence

We regularly deal with disputes arising from allegations of negligence in a professional context including:

  • Accountants
  • Auditors
  • Insurance Intermediaries
  • Solicitors
