This large set is spread across six locations: London, Birmingham, Bournemouth, Bristol, Oxford and Winchester.

We have an enviable reputation for our expertise and sector knowledge with an ability to provide clear, practical legal advice to clients.  Our quality barristers, from Silks to Juniors, conduct cases in all courts and Tribunals, both in the UK and overseas. Members of Chambers also appear in arbitrations, both as arbitrators and counsel, and a number are highly regarded mediators.

3PB advise a broad range of clients from Government and public sector bodies and FTSE 350 companies to private clients. We also offer legal representation and advice under the Direct Public Access Scheme, across all our practice areas, to members of the public needing legal advice directly from a barrister.

Clients note “the quality of service and client care is so good it’s one of the key reasons we keep going back to them" and "the clerks are proactive and easy to work with”.

A set solicitors frequently turn to, 3PB is extremely reliable and able to provide first-class coverage in terms of geographical areas as well as work disciplines.

Members are approachable and user-friendly, and one always has confidence that the clerks will be able to provide a suitably skilled and experienced lawyer, who will get to grips with a client’s case.

Some say they honestly do not think that the set could do anything that could improve the level of service; all staff are friendly and always ready to assist.

In particular, the chambers directors are singled out: Stuart Pringle comes back to you quickly and ensures that solicitors are kept informed at all stages, Mark Heath is commercially savvy and forward-thinking, and Russell Porter is particularly adept at providing a smooth service and dealing efficiently with any hiccups that might arise.

Recent personnel changes saw Stuart Smith join as the fourth chambers director from St Philips Chambers, and Simon Astill replace Joanna Poulton as chambers’ chief executive.
