Our building in Gray’s Inn provides comfortable and spacious accommodation for conference and meetings in many of our members’ rooms. In addition, we have two dedicated conference rooms.

However members of 5RB are also happy to have conferences fixed at solicitors’ offices to suit their or their clients’ convenience, and on request arrangements can be made for the delivery or collection of papers to or from solicitors’ offices. We are also happy to arrange conference calls.


All Members of 5RB and clerks are contactable by email and drafts of documents can be collected or delivered or can be sent by e-mail.

We are happy to accept instructions by email, but we would ask that you always telephone us in advance, and that you send all emails to Chambers’ main email address at

The Clerks’ room is equipped with a computerised fee and electronic diary system. Chambers operates an internal network providing access to the Clerks’ Room as well as law reports and Judgments.
