4-5 Gray’s Inn Square is at the forefront of election law. Our top-ranked silks and juniors have an almost unique wealth of experience in this area, acting as counsel (or sitting as election commissioner) in nearly all of the most important election law cases of the past 30 years. It is a testament to the depth of members’ expertise that they are frequently called upon to provide urgent advice during elections.

Members advise and represent all persons with an interest in elections, including returning officers, political parties, politicians and campaigners. Our barristers have acted and advised on election matters in other Commonwealth countries, including Scotland and the West Indies.

Chambers‘ strength in election law is aided by our market-leading expertise in related areas such as local government law, public law, commercial litigation and the law of unincorporated associations.

Members edit the leading election law commentary in Parker’s Law and Conduct of Elections.
