Crime Tier 4
'A solid criminal set', 3 Temple Gardens has a track record of high-profile defence work. Nicholas Whitehorn acted for Charlotte Walker, who was charged with conspiring with others to cause her own abortion by ingesting mifepristone and misoprostol. The charges against Walker were dismissed, while the other co-defendants – the father of Walker's child and his two friends – were convicted of conspiring to administer a poison to Walker to cause a miscarriage. Elsewhere, Tim Forte represented Stephen Bishop in the long-running Operation Eelcatcher case, involving a plot to blow up a mosque using homemade explosives; Bishop received a four-year sentence.
Members of 3 Temple Gardens practice across the criminal and civil spectrums, including fraud, health and safety, licensing and regulatory, and clinical negligence, among others.
Gary Brown – one of the premier clerks at the criminal bar.
Gary Brown has been a huge asset to chambers for many years. He is dependable and incredibly astute in finding the right counsel for each case. He is well supported by Mike Cross who is a straight talking clerk, who will always do his best to help you out. Mike will bend over backwards for you to get the job done. You always know where you stand with him.
Mike Cross at 3TG is exceptional. Helpful and approachable, he will always find a solution.
3 Temple Gardens are a fantastic set, made up of a number of fantastically talented barristers, all of whom are willing to deal with any matters they are instructed in. I think their friendliness and presentation as a chambers who are all very supportive of one another is what sets them apart.
3 Temple Gardens are well-known and respected. The clerking team is professional and very experienced.
3 Temple Gardens is, in my opinion, an under rated criminal set. There is strength in depth with some outstanding members at all levels. I am always impressed by their counsel.
Excellent Chambers – with the exception of a handful of other barristers I use 3 Temple Gardens exclusively. A broad choice of advocates able to cover the most minor to the most serious of offences.
They are always able to find the right barrister for the case.

3 Temple Gardens > Set Profile
3TG has almost 50 years of expertise as a criminal set. Chambers’ 60 tenants, led by six Queen’s Counsel, provide strength, depth and dedicated representation at every level. Several former members are judges, including one who was appointed Judge Advocate General. Chambers has an extensive and constantly growing client base, undertaking publicly funded and private work. 3TG is instructed by top tier firms in London and the South East, and increasingly sought-after on other circuits, with professional clients instructing Chambers from Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham and Wales. 3TG has a strong reputation for being efficient, professional and reliable, while remaining friendly and approachable. Chambers has one of the best clerking teams around, able to identify the most suitable barrister for every case, ensuring that their extremely high standards of work are maintained. In the past two years, 3TG has welcomed ten new members and seen Jeremy Wainwright’s appointment as Queen’s Counsel.
The marketing team organises forward thinking and practical seminars which in the last year have attracted panellists such as Baroness Butler-Sloss, Mrs Justice Andrews DBE and the Human Trafficking Foundation. Future highlights include a seminar on cryptocurrencies with a BBC correspondent and Transparency International as well as seminars on cannabis regulation and financial crime. 3TG is also currently developing a programme of training seminars for law firms and in-house departments and is happy to collaborate to develop these on a bespoke basis. In addition, they have engaged a leading design agency to rebrand the set.
The Pupillage Committee continues to work hard to maintain high standards and last year Chambers saw the highest number of applicants in a number of years. Chambers is also proud of and supports access-to-the Bar initiatives including Ruth Reid’s ‘Cake & Counsel’ which led to her being nominated for an award in the UK Diversity Legal Awards.
3TG is instructed in the full range of serious and general crime cases including, but not limited to, terrorism, murder, violence, drugs, organised crime and sexual offences. They have continued to build their extradition team who now accept instructions from both the CPS Extradition Unit and on behalf of requested persons in both first instance and appellate proceedings. In addition, they have further developed their reputation in financial crime both domestically and internationally. Chambers has a respected business crime team which has received instructions for the defence and prosecution on cases brought by the CPS Specialist Fraud Division, the NCA, the Insolvency Service and the SFO. Recent case highlights include Operation Midas, a large-scale fraud involving the alleged misappropriation of grant funding from the Welsh Assembly, the EU and the defrauding of private investors. Members were also instructed in Operation Balaban, a sophisticated, multi-million pound carbon credit fraud which included aspects involving gold mines and high value diamonds. Three members of Chambers represented two of the defendants at the trial in this matter involving a discredited expert which caused the trial to collapse at Southwark Crown Court last year. In addition, two members secured the acquittal of the CEO of a hospice trust in an allegation of fraud totalling £1.5m brought by the Department of Health Anti-Fraud Unit at Bristol Crown Court.
