9 King's Bench Walk

Founded on Belief, Passion & Integrity



London Legal Walk 18th May 2015


We are a Chambers founded on belief in the rule of law, the right of all individuals to be properly represented and the administration of justice. Those solid foundations, which were laid down 40 years ago by our founders AM Abbas and A M Azhar, will help us to continue their legacy.

During the past 40 years Chambers has developed and expanded in numbers, improved the quality and experience of our membership and, as a consequence, the level of cases we are currently instructed in is of a standard that is exceptional.

We will continue to uphold the principles adhered to by the founders of these Chambers and promise our clients excellence, commitment, dedication and a quality of representation that is of the highest order.
