'The set as a whole is exceptional and its service is always perfect.'  (Chambers UK 2014)

Crown Office Chambers is consistently ranked as one of the top construction sets. Former Head of Chambers Sir Antony Edwards-Stuart is now the Judge in Charge of the Technology and Construction Court. Our members have been instructed in connection with many high profile projects in the UK and around the world. Our experience includes disputes relating to:

  • structures: houses, apartment blocks, hospitals, hotels, housing estates, leisure centres, factories, warehouses, cinemas, retail complexes, stadiums, car parks, schools and swimming pools;
  • infrastructure: roads, railways, tramways, airports, stations, bridges, tunnels, viaducts and container terminals;
  • energy, natural resources and utilities: power stations, nuclear installations, gas works, incinerators, petrochemical plants, process plants, wind farms, flood defences, oil & gas installations, fuel storage depots, water and sewage treatment works and pipelines (both on land and offshore).

We act for employers, contractors, professionals, funders, suppliers and insurers in an advisory capacity and as advocates in all forms of dispute resolution in the UK and internationally. The number of construction barristers at Crown Office Chambers gives us a strength and range comparable to the smaller ‘pure construction’ sets, and enables us to provide teams of counsel for large and complex disputes. Our clients particularly appreciate the added dimension that our expertise in insurance and professional negligence brings to our approach.

We are accustomed to the particular demands of adjudication - please visit our adjudication page for further details.

Members of Chambers sit as arbitrators, adjudicators, mediators and as members of dispute boards, are retained as legal assessors, and are called upon to give binding opinions as legal experts.

Andrew Bartlett QC and Isabel Hitching are joint general editors of Emden’s Construction Law by Crown Office Chambers, which is mostly written by members of Crown Office Chambers.
