Serle Court


Described as “exceptional across the board”, Serle Court is applauded for being ‘an excellent set with a roster of formidably intelligent, yet approachable and user-friendly barristers‘. Serle Court‘s members consistently appear in the Commercial Court and Chancery Division’s most substantial civil fraud actions (Legal 500) handling “matters of the greatest worth and complexity”… Serle Court “offers a variety of skill sets that others can’t provide, and houses some of the biggest names at the Bar”— Chambers and Partners. Head of chambers Elizabeth Jones KC has longstanding experience in handling litigation involving fraud, breaches of fiduciary duty and other wrongdoing (Legal 500). In addition to its reputation as one of the top sets at the English Bar, Serle Court is also one of the largest commercial chancery sets, with 80 members, including 28 silks.

Serle Court’s members offer genuine expertise across a broad range of chancery and commercial disciplines, from offshore litigation concerning the world’s largest companies to domestic advice on probate matters, servicing a similarly disparate lay and professional client base at home and abroad.

Serle Court barristers provide clear, practical advice and imaginative solutions to all types of disputes. Serle Court is experienced at putting together streamlined and powerful teams, and is seen as the go to choice for big-ticket cases, which are often cross-border and multi-faceted; these cases have included: Mozambique tuna bonds litigation, the Wong litigation, Re BHS Group Ltd (in liquidation), Dyer v Webb, Renova Industries Ltd v Emmerson International Corporation, Investec Trust (Guernsey) Ltd v Glenalla Properties Ltd, Khan v Gany Holdings, Bestfort Developments LLP v Ras Al Khaimah Investment Authority, Municipality of Mariana and ors v BHP Group plc and anor, Yukos Finance BV & others v Stephen Lynch & others. The Hyderabad Fund case, the RBS rights issue litigation, the Fiona litigation, and the Lehman Brothers administration. Serle Court has also established itself as one of the leading ADR sets, with highly regarded mediators and arbitrators, as well as members with extensive experience of appearing in ‘alternative’ dispute resolution forums.

A significant proportion of Serle Court’s work originates overseas. Serle Court barristers are routinely instructed to act in a range of offshore jurisdictions, including Bermuda, BVI, the Cayman Islands, the Crown Dependencies, Hong Kong, Singapore, and the Middle East, including in the DIFC.
