About us

Gough Square Chambers is a small, approachable set of chambers with 26 barristers and 3 clerks which has been in existence for over 30 years.

In this time it has developed a leading strength in regulated lending, financial services and consumer regulatory work. Chambers’ regulated lending specialism covers consumer credit, regulated mortgages and retail banking, while its consumer regulatory work encompasses food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical products, health and safety and other matters affecting businesses, individuals and regulators at national, local and independent levels.

Gough Square Chambers can be found in the same quiet square north of Fleet Street as Dr Johnson’s house. It is close to the Law Courts and easily accessible by public transport.
