Welcome to Bankside Chambers

Bankside Chambers is New Zealand’s preeminent collective of independent barristers, delivering superior expertise across diverse specialist areas.

Unlike a traditional legal firm or partnership model, Bankside Chambers members practise separately under the Bankside Chambers brand. While a prestigious address provides a shared professional environment, each member retains self-contained offices, IT and information storage to ensure optimum confidentiality for every client.
