About

Angel Chambers is the oldest and most established Barristers’ Chambers in Swansea having been founded originally in the 1920’s.

Over the years there has been a steady and structured increase in the number of tenants practising from the set and this process will continue. This has resulted in us now becoming the largest set in South West Wales. We have adapted to the needs of the professional and lay client seeking to provide those services which are required of us. We are pleased that we have the resources to advise clients and appear in Court through the medium of the Welsh language in all legal disciplines and at all levels.

Over the years a number of former members of Chambers have gone on to take up Judicial Office in a variety of capacities including appointments to the High Court and Circuit Bench as well as appointments as District Judges and Industrial Tribunal Chairmen. A number of current tenants hold part time Judicial Office.

We offer a comprehensive advocacy and advisory service principally across South and West Wales but are prepared to accept work anywhere on Circuit or indeed elsewhere when appropriate. We have members who are able to advise on most disciplines and are constantly seeking to adapt in order to meet demand.
