We are delighted to be recommended in the Legal 500 bar guide 2020 edition.


‘Family Law makes up the lion’s share of the workload of the members of Stour Chambers and this is reflected in the praise received from clients for its collaborative, flexible approach, and the selection of ‘very strong advocates’ available.’


Ranked as a Leading Set in the South Eastern Circuit.


Our Head of Chambers Simon Johnson, Adam Clegg and Kate Kochnari have also been singled out as being ‘Leading Juniors’.


Simon Johnson – ‘An exceptional advocate and a walking encyclopaedia of the law.’


Adam Clegg – ‘Always calm and well prepared, whatever the circumstances of the case.’


Kate Kochnari – ‘Goes the extra mile for her clients.’


We thank all our solicitor and professional clients for their continued support.
