Long-time market leader Keating Chambers “continues to blaze a trail in construction law.” Ever-present in the leading matters of the day, it houses ” the finest barristers and extremely helpful, down-to-earth clerks – it’s service with a smile all round.” Solicitors readily recognise the value on offer here, noting that “Keating enhances our business and our reputation with our clients.” Over the last year, members have acted in many of the most noteworthy construction cases around, both domestically and worldwide. In all their dealings they have enhanced an already glittering reputation. (Chambers and Partners 2010). In September 2009, Keating Chambers won the title “Construction Set of the Year” at the annual Bar Awards for the fourth consecutive year, by “excelling in both international and domestic construction markets”, in the words of the judges’ citation.
Keating Chambers has 50 barristers, including 22 Queen’s Counsel, 28 Juniors and three door tenants/practising associate members. This means that assistance is available for construction disputes of every type and size, from a domestic party wall case to a multi-million pound claim in an oil and gas industry project. As Legal 500 commented its 2008 Directory: “strength across the board is excellent”.
Keating Chambers was named after its Head of Chambers in 1993, Donald Keating QC, author of the leading text-book ‘Keating on Building Contracts’, but has been providing high quality advice and advocacy in construction law for over 50 years. It has produced a number of eminent judges in that time: Lord Justice Dyson,Sir Anthony May (President of the Queen’s Bench Division), Sir Vivian Ramsey and Sir Peter Coulson. The combination of traditional legal excellence with innovative commercially-focussed thinking and extensive construction experience explains why barristers from Keating Chambers represent a natural choice for solicitors and clients requiring genuine specialists.
