Established to meet the need for high quality legal advice and advocacy in Somerset and the West Country, Octagon Chambers has increased in size and legal practice to match the demand.

Octagon Chambers - Professional Legal Advice

Octagon Chambers was established in 2003. We are a growing, dynamic and forward looking set, covering a wide base of legal disciplines principally in the south west of England,  but our members are flexible and always willing to travel.

With convenient accommodation in the centre of Taunton close to all the courts, we are able to meet professional and lay clients under traditional and direct access arrangements, both inside and outside normal working hours. We have excellent conference rooms in chambers, but our members are willing to meet our clients at solicitors' offices or court centres when circumstances demand it. Members are also always available to assist with advice on the telephone and via internet enabled communication. We take pride in our relaxed, professional attitude and our approachability.

Whilst Chambers operates an Equal Opportunity Policy, the age and nature of our accommodation allows only for limited disabled access. However, arrangements can always be made for conferences at locations specifically adapted for ease of access.

This website provides information about our facilities, members and services. Please feel free to contact us on the telephone or by email if you would like any further information, or if we can help you in any other way. Our members can all be contacted individually, or our clerks at:
