Who we are
De Jure Chambers is a modern progressive legal practice designed specifically to offer competitive legal services by minimising overheads and leveraging opportunities created by technology. This ability to offer affordable and qualitative legal services in multiple locations by combining effective and efficient elements of the traditional solicitor’s model, modern chamber’s structure and digital innovations sets De Jure Chambers apart from other providers of legal services.
De Jure Chambers was established to respond to the specific needs of small- and medium-size businesses; not-for-profit organisations; charities; people in the diaspora; unincorporated organisations; community interest companies and other similar social enterprises. De Jure Chambers is not a traditional law firm.
De Jure international is the local hub of De Jure Global, a rapidly growing professional network of solicitors, barristers, accountants, architects, dentists, doctors, investment managers, patent and trademark lawyers and engineers committed to the De Jure values and upholding the reputation of the profession.
De Jure values
Our first responsibility is to our clients and their customers. To this end, we continuously strive to provide the highest quality service at affordable costs. Just outcomes and fair profits for our clients and their customers therefore lie at the heart of the service we provide.
Our second responsibility is to support charitable courses and development of communities in which we live and work. This supports our strong believe in active citizenship and local delivery of services that citizens need.
Finally, we are responsible for our people who work throughout the world.
All organisations and people are entitled, de jure, to good quality and affordable legal advice and services. Not-for-profit organisations; charities; people in the diaspora; unincorporated organisations; small- and medium-size businesses; community interest companies and other similar social enterprises struggle to afford the high quality legal services readily accessible to large corporations. De Jure Chambers is established to fill in this gap and affords this for its clients and their customers by stripping its practice of unnecessary overheads, deriving economies by investing in technology, being out-come focused and using affordable premises only on demand.
