Temple Garden Chambers is a leading common law set based in London and The Hague.
With excellence from top to bottom Chambers provides a first class service in a number of different fields.
Temple Garden Chambers has been at the forefront of costs litigation since before it was recognised as a specialist field of legal practice.
Its costs team comprises some of the country’s leading costs practitioners, who regularly act in headline-grabbing cases which shape the development of the law in this area. The breadth of TGC’s expertise has been recognised by consistently high rankings in the legal directories.
TGC’s members regularly appear before the Senior Courts Costs Office and Regional Costs Judges, in leading cases in the higher courts, up to and including the Supreme Court, and in relation to costs disputes which follow substantial litigation (including collective redress and commercial litigation).
Members of the costs team are sought after for their advisory work by solicitors (from high street through to nationwide and City firms), litigation funders and insurers. We regularly advise such clients on a broad range of both litigation funding issues and in relation to points which arise in contentious litigation.
Our costs barristers regularly speak at industry-wide conferences, while TGC is well known for its industry-leading costs newsletter, which boasts a substantial circulation.
