Five Pump Court Chambers

Our successful family team is growing

Due to a surplus of work, we are recruiting family practitioners at all levels across all areas of family law work.

5 Pump Court is a friendly, collegiate set. We offer a huge amount of flexibility allowing our members to structure their careers in the way that best suits them and balancing their practice with families, academia, the judiciary or other outside interests. Our forward thinking flexible working policy is actively supported within Chambers and you can expect to develop a practice which fits around your life rather than the other way around.

We provide a supportive environment, frequent socials, training and top quality clerking. We are an ambitious set looking for committed practitioners to drive and share in our success.

For a confidential, pre-application discussion please don’t hesitate to contact our Chambers Director Clare Kelly on 020 7632 7859. Applications and any requests for reasonable adjustments in the recruitment process should be sent to clarekelly@5pumpcourt.com  Further information about our family work and tenancy with us is available at www.5pumpcourt.com

5 Pump Court is committed to diversity and inclusion. We welcome applications from outstanding applicants from all backgrounds.

Congratulations to our clerking team

Everyone at 5 Pump Court Chambers would like to congratulate our family clerks, Jay Dorton and Stephen Bush on being finalists for Clerking Team of the Year at the Family Law Awards for the third year running! This is testament to their hard work during and since the pandemic, which has seen our family practice not just survive but positively thrive.
