Bar top 30 position: 6=

No5 Chambers offers a comprehensive across-the-board legal service while developing strong working relationships with its clients and delivering the highest standards of advocacy and client service.

This large set has four offices in Birmingham, London, Bristol and the East Midlands. Paul Bleasdale QC is the head of Chambers and Tony McDaid is the practice director. Throughout its 100-year history, No5 Chambers has developed a reputation for breaking new ground and continues to be regarded as a progressive and forward-thinking set, maintaining its success in traditional sectors of law while offering specialist advice and representation at the cutting edge of newly evolving areas. 

With over 230 barristers, including 26 silks, No5 prides itself on forming partnerships with solicitor clients and other professionals. In late 2007, it announced its strategic alliance with the first Chinese law firm to set up in the UK, ZLWD, and in October 2009, No5 hosted its Gateway to India Conference in New Delhi.

In 2011 No5 joined the Turkish British Chamber of Commerce and Industry, cementing its growing links with Turkey and taking further steps in its plan to provide its services to global markets. Chambers has associate tenants in Dubai, Spain, Cayman, Hong Kong, Singapore and India and is keen to develop further links particularly in the fields of construction, international arbitration and commercial work.

Dedicated specialist clerking teams based at all four offices have detailed knowledge of the individuals and groups they manage and support, and are available to advise clients on the most suitable counsel for a particular case.

A highly respected set, No5 Chambers remains a well-reputed provider of informative and topical seminars, allowing the latest issues and developments to be discussed with highly qualified speakers and sector experts. Many members of Chambers write or contribute to legal textbooks and specialist journals.

The set has recently launched a pioneering not-for-profit referral company.
