Civil Law

Becket Chambers’ Civil Law Team has many years’ expertise across a broad range of Civil Law cases. Our barristers represent individuals and businesses involved in disputes as well as acting for local authorities or HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC). We can act for you in all Civil Law matters requiring injunctions, in claims for damages, in contractual disputes and in matters involving costs law.

We advise and represent clients in all types of cases, including fast-track, intermediate and multi-track cases from pre-issue, throughout proceedings through to judgement and subsequent enforcement.

If you wish to bring a Civil case, or need to defend one, it is important to remember that, in a Civil Law case, the burden of proof rests with the defendant – to demonstrate balance of probability. We will offer straight-talking advice on the merits of your case, help you, where possible, to resolve matters through mediation, and provide advice and representation to you at all stages if your case goes to court.
