Matrix is a barristers’ chambers with offices in Gray’s Inn, London, Geneva and Brussels. We are a group of independent and specialist lawyers who work across a wide range of areas of law. Our members work throughout the UK and have extensive experience internationally having worked in over 100 countries. Owing to Matrix’s multi-disciplinary practice and standard of excellence, we are uniquely positioned to deal with complex legal issues, particularly where they overlap multiple areas of law. Barristers at Matrix are regulated by the Bar Standards Board.
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 we are proud of our record of innovation to date. Our actions are guided by our core values, which outline our principles as an organisation and govern how we work. We pride ourselves on our reputation as a professional and approachable set where diversity, accessibility and client care are widely championed.
