12KBW was delighted to announce that Adam Chambers had been appointed District Judge. The Lord Chief Justice has deployed him to the South Eastern Circuit, based at Hastings County Court, with effect from today (16 January 2022).

Adam undertook his pupillage at 12KBW beginning September 1989 and began tenancy in December 1990. He developed a strong personal injury practice involving overlaps between PI and other areas of law, including claims arising out of land ownership; occupiers’ liability, private and public nuisances and trespass and in the context of the liability of statutory bodies; highway duties, housing disrepair, regulatory powers and planning.

Adam was previously appointed as a Deputy District Judge in 2010 and will now be known as District Judge Chambers.

Adam commented: “I am grateful to 12KBW for providing me with some good friends and a place to pursue my interest in the more obscure corners of the legal system. An excellent preparation for dispensing justice in Hastings; a duty I look forward to performing”.

12KBW wishes Adam all the best for the future.
