Chambers of Steven Kay QC
9 Bedford Row


Tessa has developed a successful practice both defending and prosecuting – thanks to her meticulous approach, her dedication, and her ability to handle cases where clients require patience and sensitivity.

Called in 2009, Tessa consistently holds her own in cases alongside opponents and co-defending counsel who are senior to her in both call and experience. She has recently completed vulnerable witness training.

Her caring but focused approach, and her reputation for representing vulnerable defendants, have seen her instructed in complex, specialist cases – and she is focusing her practice on serious, challenging cases where clients require patience and sensitivity.

She is often commended for her role in multi-handed, paper-heavy trials, thanks to her case preparation and her focused handling of the disclosure regime.

Tessa has been instructed in a number of cases investigated by the Trident Gang Command, and is sought out in cases which require attention to detail as well as frank, tactically astute advice.

She is heavily involved in training our current pupils in advocacy and practice development, and is a respected and valued member of the junior bar.
