Matrix is a barristers’ chambers located in Gray’s Inn, London, Geneva and Brussels. We are a group of independent and specialist lawyers who work in a wide range of areas of law. We work throughout the UK and have extensive experience internationally. For more information about our international practice, please visit our sister site, Matrix International.
Matrix was set up in 2000 in response to the changing face of the legal landscape at that time. We wanted to achieve a different working model from the traditional English chambers and, at the time of our establishment, we were labelled “the future of the Bar”. We are proud of our record of innovation and of our reputation as an accessible, professional and approachable set. Our actions are guided by our core values, which outline our principles as an organisation and govern how we work. We operate within a modern environment, where diversity, accessibility and client care are widely championed.
Our mission statement
“To be an excellent, innovative provider of legal services domestically and internationally.”
The organisation is led by James Laddie QC, who is the Chair of our Management Committee. Our staff team, business development and operational structure is managed by our Chief Executive, Rachel Holmes. Our practice desk staff and members are managed by our Practice Director, Jason Housden.
Matrix was accredited in 2016 as an Investors in People Platinum organisation, which recognises that our organisation works at the highest standard of people management. Find out more about Investors in People on their website.
