We are delighted to announce the appointment of our former Head of Chambers, Jeremy Weston QCas a circuit judge. We offer our congratulations to His Honour Judge Weston QC and thank him for his tireless service as Head of Chambers over the last six years and as a member of these chambers for 25 years.

The members of St Ives are equally delighted to confirm that Elizabeth Isaacs QC has been elected as our new Head of Chambers.

We welcome new tenants Eloise Marriott, Queenie Dian and Feargus Campbell following the successful completion of their pupillages.

In addition, we are pleased to be joined by Morgan Pirone, Emma Kelly and Bethany Sterling as they commence pupillage.

Tenancy Applications

St Ives Chambers emerges from the pandemic in a position of immense strength and we seek to maintain our reputation for excellence. Due to an excess of work from our existing client base, we invite applications for tenancy from exceptional practitioners at all levels of seniority in our core practice groups of family, crime and civil. We will also give consideration to applications for third six probationary tenancies. 

Our expertise is consistently recognised by The Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners and we are proud to be one of the country’s leading sets.

• A dynamic and modern set rooted in proud traditions.
• A clear career path. A number of members have taken silk whilst practising at St Ives and many have gone on to
part-time and full-time judicial appointments.
• Skilled and knowledgable practice managers with a thorough understanding of their clerking areas.
• A dedicated professional management support team, including dedicated fees and billing clerks.

• A hugely competitive rent structure.

Applications will be treated in the strictest confidence. For an informal discussion, please contact Andrew Day. Details on how to apply are available on our website (www.stiveschambers.co.uk/about/tenancy-applications/)
