Carmelite Chambers is one of the longest established sets of chambers in the United Kingdom, specialising in all areas of criminal law but with a particular emphasis upon serious fraud and financial crime.

Chambers is a highly respected, leading set with a national and international reputation for excellence, our barristers provide the very best advice and advocacy and are regularly instructed in high profile cases.

Our members have a breadth of experience covering every aspect of criminal and regulatory law and advisory work.
The most recent legal publications describe chambers as follows:

"The set's members have notable strength in defending across a range of fraud work, including VAT and MTIC frauds, tax evasion, carbon credit frauds, and money laundering cases. The set is well known for representing financial professionals, for example, accountants, bankers, and solicitors. Instructing solicitors say the set's junior counsel are 'extremely reliable and well-liked by defendants." (Legal 500, 2021)

"A respected set, well known for its deep bench and long-standing focus on criminal matters. Members act for both the prosecution and defence and often appear in complex and specialised cases. They handle the full gamut of criminal matters including cases relating to organised crime, terrorism, manslaughter and sexual assault... One instructing solicitor comments: “Carmelite is populated by very talented individuals and is a top-quality set."" (Chambers & Partners, 2020)
