We recognise that what makes us distinctive is not just the quality of the services we offer, but the manner in which we provide them. Providing legal services in an approachable and accessible manner is an integral part of our barristers’ and clerks’ relationships with clients.

One Brick Court’s current expertise in media, communication and information law is based on a long-established history as a leading chambers for defamation and media law.

Our specialisation in libel goes back to the 1880s when Sir Hugh Fraser published his first book on defamation. Since then members of Chambers have been leading advocates, published important text books, and have included notable appointments to the Bench.
