Lateral Hires

We welcome applications from established practitioners.

2 Temple Gardens (2TG) is welcoming applications for tenancy from barristers of at least five years’ call.

We are a busy civil and commercial set, with 16 silks and 43 juniors who have established a strong reputation as leaders in their fields.

2TG’s specialisations include commercial work, private international law, insurance, property damage, product liability, clinical negligence, personal injury, employment, sport and public law. Members of chambers are often involved in inquiries and work as mediators and arbitrators in their practice areas. Our juniors are frequently recruited to the Attorney General’s panel and deal with complex government litigation.

Chambers is superbly located on Middle Temple Lane, overlooking the Temple gardens and the river, in the heart of legal London. The quality of the service provided by our barristers and clerks has been consistently recognised by our excellent directory rankings and by the success of our practitioners, many of whom have taken silk.

Applications comprising a covering letter and CV should be addressed to Bradley Martin KC, Head of Lateral Recruitment, via Any approach made to Chambers will be kept strictly confidential.

If you would prefer to speak to Lee Tyler, the Senior Clerk, via, or a member of Chambers before making a formal application, we would be happy to facilitate that.

The application deadline is 5pm Friday 26 April 2024.

We are committed to equal opportunity in the recruitment of members and regularly review our policies and procedures to ensure that this is achieved.
