Set

A specialist set in this area with very good strength in depth – 2TG is excellent, specifically for the quality of silks and availability of juniors.

2TG is my go-to chambers and I always instruct its cross-border team, as the barristers are all very knowledgeable and have a great deal of expertise.

The barristers are helpful and will always try to move matters around to accommodate. They also put on training regularly, which is very helpful.

2TG is strategically placed to offer expert insurance counsel at all levels of call. As a chambers it has been involved in leading Court of Appeal, House of Lords, and Supreme Court authorities in its core practice areas for the past five decades.

2TG has a strong insurance/reinsurance team, but what sets it apart is the cross-discipline experience. Unlike some sets, because 2TG covers diverse areas of work, its barristers are better able to assist where insurance issues overlap with commercial/cross-border/injury issues.

Clerking

The clerks’ room at 2TG is very experienced and will bend over backwards to assist.

They have a good appreciation of the strengths and weaknesses of their barristers, and are always able to make sensible recommendations of appropriate counsel.

Senior clerk Lee Tyler steers the ship extremely well.

Joint first junior clerk Billy Hammonds is particularly involved in the insurance and commercial side of 2TG’s practice.

Exceptional service – Billy Hammonds, in particular, is down to earth, approachable, and capable of having an open, honest and straightforward dialogue when it comes to fees and ensuring his barristers’ diaries are correctly maintained.

At 2TG we promote ethical practices and socially responsible behaviour for our members, staff and other stakeholders.

Members of chambers are committed to access to justice and recognise the importance to society as a whole of high-quality legal advice for all individuals. Members regularly undertake pro bono work, providing wide-ranging advice and legal representation via organisations such as Advocate, the Chancery Bar Litigant in Person Support Scheme, the Employment Law Appeal Advice Scheme and the Free Representation Unit.

2TG is an equal opportunities employer and, supported by three E&D officers and an active E&D Working Group, it is committed to the promotion of equality, diversity and accessibility. Members and staff attend Bar Council training sessions on E&D and fair recruitment, as well as regular in-house sessions, and we apply the E&D Rules in the Bar Standards Board Handbook and the Equality Act 2010. We ensure that in the recruitment and selection process of pupils, tenants and members of staff, candidates are assessed against relevant criteria only. Pupillage applications are anonymized before marking, mitigating circumstances are always considered and our recruitment statistics are robustly scrutinised and analysed by the E&D officers. We strive to ensure that employees, pupils and junior members are given equal chances of training, career development and promotion. Chambers is a signatory of the Women in Law Pledge, tacking the issue of gender equality in the profession. In accordance with the Bar Standards Board’s equality rules, members and staff are encouraged to provide diversity data. This enables Chambers to analyse and publish an anonymous summary of such data.

We are committed to taking action against racism in all its forms: individual, institutional and systemic. We wholeheartedly endorse the Bar Council statement on equal treatment, the rule of law and inclusion here.

As a chambers, we want to create and support the necessary, tangible change within our profession and our wider community. We regularly work with a number of organisations, such as the Sutton Trust, Speakers in Schools and Bridging the Bar, to promote access to the Bar for those from non-traditional backgrounds. We are keen to support 10,000 Black Interns (10KBI), a new initiative being launched in 2022. Further, 2TG, in partnership with The Times newspaper, has run a national mooting competition in recent years. The competition has provided an opportunity for all students in higher education to compete, regardless of their educational institution or background.

2TG is committed to improving and promoting the well-being of its members and staff. Our Wellbeing and Social Responsibility Working Group regularly provides information and organises activities available to all staff, pupils and members. This has been particularly valued during the Covid-19 pandemic. We work in partnership with Health Assured, an organisation which is on hand to provide members and staff with support.

2TG is an environmentally conscious chambers. We tackle environmental issues such as waste disposal and recycling, energy consumption and maximising energy efficiency, and we constantly seek creative ways to reduce our carbon footprint further.
