first

Leading the way. St Philips Stone is a part of St Philips Chambers, an award winning multi-disciplinary set of barristers which is widely recognised as one of the most innovative and forward-looking chambers in the UK.

engage

People first, barristers second. We will take the time to get to know you, and build long-term relationships with our clients by taking a personal interest and creating an environment of mutual trust. It is this which enables us to take the initiative and be imaginative in the way we search for solutions. St Philips Stone is reducing the traditional distance between barrister and client. We strive to be open, approachable and accountable.

innovate

Informed by history, driven by quality. Our uncompromising business structure is generating a client-focused and responsive service. Efficient management, clear channels of communication and a fully-managed and protected IT system provide the ideal climate for the development of new ideas and the application of innovative approaches. St Philips has achieved and maintained BarMark accreditation since its inception, and has for the last 5 years attained a perfect 100% rating in our annual audits.

together

Impressive individuals, dynamic teams. Our clients can hand-pick the individuals best equipped to meet their particular needs. To ease the selection process, St Philips Stone has established specialist teams of barristers, each of whom has acknowledged expertise within the identified area of law. This, however, is only the beginning of the relationship. It is our barristers’ breadth of knowledge and depth of ability which lie behind our growing reputation for excellence, but clients remain the focus – continually consulted to ensure their objectives are understood and met.

unite

Your needs, our goals. Understanding our own position within the supply chain has enabled St Philips Stone to identify with our clients, to understand their concerns and to focus on their needs. It is our clients’ interests that we ultimately represent, and this attitude prevails throughout St Philips Stone, shaping our culture.

success

Blood and sweat, but no tears. It may be a pleasure to be part of the process, but it is the end result that ultimately matters. The innovative methods and modern systems we employ are not there for decoration. Strong barrister-client relationships are not seen as an end in themselves.

Our approach provides us with the means to reach your goals. It allows us to excel on your behalf and continually to provide the very best standards of advocacy and advice.
