Established practitioners

Ely Place Chambers welcomes applications from established practitioners whose areas of practice complement our own. In recent years we have successfully recruited at both silk and junior level and our clerks are experienced at managing the smooth transition of practices.

Chambers has for many years benefitted from established relationships with a number of London’s best known solicitors and some of the Country’s largest regional firms. Our members enjoy strong and rewarding practices supported by our friendly and efficient team of clerks, led by our Senior Clerk, Richard Sheehan.

In June 2015 we moved into newly-renovated, well equipped and elegant Georgian premises in the heart of Legal London that makes us one of closest chambers to the new Rolls Building and provides an excellent location for conferences.

All applications will be treated in the strictest confidence and considered in accordance with our Equality and Diversity Policy. Enquiries can be made to our Head of Chambers, William McCormick QC, Richard Sheehan, or any member of Chambers.


Chambers has a long standing policy of recruiting from its pupils. We look for pupils who have excellent communication skills as well as impressive academic records.
