Fountain Chambers is a progressive set of barristers in the North East of England with a forward-thinking outlook, embracing changes such as mediation for separating couples, Skype video conferencing and Direct Access for clients.

Our team of barristers and clerks provides a friendly, high quality service to individuals, unions, businesses, local and national government departments.

Due to client demand we have now opened a further office, with conference rooms, on the Quayside, Newcastle upon Tyne. We have secured free parking for Solicitors attending for conferences in Newcastle. Our administrative team will continue to be based at our offices in the Cleveland Business Centre, Middlesbrough.

Our Head of Chambers, Jamie Hill Q.C., leads a set of Chambers whose members and staff are all dedicated to providing the best possible service to their clients. Members of Chambers presently sit as part-time judges, Recorders, an Immigration Adjudicator and an Assistant Coroner for Teesside.

A number of former members of Chambers have been appointed to the bench including His Honour Judge ANJ Briggs, His Honour Leslie Spittle, His Honour Judge PJB Armstrong, His Honour Judge SJ Ashurst, the former Recorder of York, and Her Honour Judge DA Sherwin.
