3PB continues to follow the latest government guidance and therefore currently encourages staff and barristers to work from home wherever possible.
All of our six centres are operational and all continue to take precautions to prevent the spread of Covid-19. You must please contact us before visiting any of our offices first on the numbers below or through your usual contact if you are planning on coming to a 3PB office or need to meet one of our barristers. Face-masks are mandatory in the common areas of chambers and in meeting rooms, unless you are in a exempt group. You will be asked to take a temperature test on arrival.

Our staff and counsel are available on the usual numbers and email addresses.

Communication and paperwork

3PB's priority is always our clients. In order to help us help you as quickly and efficiently as possible, wherever possible please send documentation and paperwork electronically to the clerks. Where hard copy must be used,; please liaise with the clerking team, before sending, as we will arrange for your papers to be sent directly to counsel or suggest alternative arrangements. Please note that paperwork delivered in hard copy will need to be sanitised which may cause delay.

Conferences and calls

Chambers continues to rely on its excellent video and audio conferencing facilities which has been fully operational throughout the pandemic. We are very pleased that we have – since lockdown was first announced in March 2020 – been able to use our technology platforms to continue to support our clients. We have been able to accommodate the vast majority of requests for phone, video calls and conferences. All of our barristers can be reached by email on firstname.surname@3pb.co.uk.

Payments

Please continue to make your payment wherever possible direct to our bank account via BACS. This will ensure no delay in the availability of counsel to support you.
