1MCB Chambers was founded over forty years ago with the aim of representing all sectors of the community, and in particular disadvantaged groups. Chambers has since grown and developed to cover many areas of practice, but remains firmly committed to that original principle of ensuring that all members of society can enjoy access to justice through first-class representation.

1MCB is committed to the representation of legally aided clients, which they believe to be critically important at a time when legal aid cuts continue to have a pernicious effect. Many of its members are additionally engaged in pro bono work, both in local communities and internationally.

Chambers has an informal and friendly working environment, and a diverse membership. They strive to be approachable and accessible for both professional and lay clients alike, whilst always ensuring that they offer the highest standards of preparation and representation.
