About Us

Atlantic Chambers can trace its history to the very beginnings of the Liverpool bar when the city was the greatest port on earth.

Liverpool is again an outward-looking international city, vibrant, dynamic and connected.  Atlantic Chambers is located at the heart of the city's transformed legal and commercial district, a stone's throw from the Queen Elizabeth II Law Courts and our world famous iconic waterfront.

In our custom designed offices in Cook Street, we meet the needs and expectations of our clients in every aspect.  Our barristers practice at all levels of seniority and we have several QCs along with other members ranked in the national excellence benchmarks, Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners UK.

Our Chambers offer extensive conference facilities for mediation, joint settlement and video link meetings as well as having access and toilet facilities for wheelchair users.

Client care is of paramount importance and we operate in accordance with the Bar Standards Board Handbook. Your instructions are accepted in accordance with the Standard Contractual Terms issued by the Bar Standards Board or under our standard Conditional Fee Agreement, full terms and conditions can be found here, click on the links for more details.

We guarantee client confidentiality when acting for both parties in a case and assign separate clerking facilities throughout the matter.

Our clerks are dedicated and friendly and ensure that all our clients receive the right advice and support all the way through the legal process.

We also operate an out-of-hours service and contact numbers can be found on the Clerks profiles pages of this site, click here.

We regularly provide CPD seminars in many areas of practice.  These seminars can be hosted in Chambers, at your offices or at other external venues.  Please register via this website if you would like to be included on our database for future events to julie@atlanticchambers.co.uk.

Atlantic Chambers is firmly committed to the active promotion of Equality and Diversity and Equal Opportunities and recognises that such a commitment requires taking positive steps to identify and eliminate possible areas of discrimination so as to afford:

  • Equality of access to all applicants for mini pupillage, tenancy or employment;
  • Equality of treatment to all members, pupils and staff;
  • Equality of service to professional clients covering both the planning of services and the decision whether to accept instructions or offer advice.


Chambers understands that if it (and more widely, the Bar) is to thrive, it needs to select the very best from the widest possible pool.

Within Chambers' commitment to equal opportunities and tackling discrimination it recognises that in society, groups and individuals are at risk of being oppressed and/or disadvantaged on the grounds of their race, colour, ethnic or national origin, nationality, citizenship, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, marital or civil partnership status, disability, age, religion or belief or pregnancy and maternity.

Our full Equality policy is available upon request.

We welcome your feedback and suggestions as to how we may improve the services that we offer.  Please feel free to contact Lee Cadwallader our Head Clerk on 0151 242 0210 or lee@atlanticchambers.co.uk

Our aim is to give all our clients the best possible service, however we recognise that there may be occasions when, for whatever reason, we do not always meet expectations and that complaints may arise as a consequence.  We have a Complaints Officer to deal with such matters, any complaints should be addressed to the Complaints Officer, full details of Chambers complaints policy can be found on the complaints page of this site, click here.
