History of Chambers

Home | About Us | History of Chambers

Named after one of its former Heads of Chambers, Donald Keating QC (author of the leading text-book ‘Keating on Building Contracts’), Keating Chambers has been providing high quality advice and advocacy in construction law for over 50 years.

Chambers has produced a number of eminent judges in that time: Lord Dyson (former Master of the Rolls), Sir Anthony May (former president of the Queen’s Bench Division), Sir Patrick Garland (former judge of the QBD),  Lord Justice Coulson (judge of the Court of Appeal), Sir Vivian Ramsey (former judge in charge of the TCC), Dame Nerys Jefford (TCC judge and presiding judge of the Wales Circuit) and Dame Finola O’Farrell (judge in charge of the TCC). The combination of traditional legal excellence, extensive construction experience, and innovative, commercially-focused thinking makes us a natural choice for solicitors and clients looking to instruct genuine specialists.
