About Us

5 Stone Buildings is a leading Chancery law chambers, based in Lincoln's Inn, London.

Members of chambers are highly regarded specialists in a wide variety of areas, including trusts law (both onshore and offshore), wills, estates and family provision, Court of Protection, art and cultural property, taxation, real property and landlord and tenant, pensions and charities. Members also advise and act in relation to professional negligence cases associated with these practice areas.

Our barristers provide advice, advocacy and drafting of the highest quality. All members at all levels of seniority have specialist experience and knowledge in our core practice areas, whether contentious or non-contentious. This strength in depth enables us to provide a good value and high quality service in respect of all issues arising in our field of practice.

5 Stone Buildings enjoys a long-established reputation at the top of the Chancery bar. We boast many distinguished former members, including a former Justice of the Supreme Court, and numerous High Court judges. Whilst we are proud of our history, we aim to provide a modern and efficient service ably assisted by our highly regarded team of clerks.

We are ranked as a Tier 1 set by the Legal 500 for Private Client: Trusts and Probate, and in Band 1 by Chambers and Partners for Chancery: Traditional, and Court of Protection: Property & Affairs. We have recently been described as “the leading chambers for traditional Chancery work” and as a “go-to set for Court of Protection matters and probate cases with high-quality people at every level” (Legal 500 2017).
