Bernard Hayward

Practice Director


As Practice Director, Bernard has overall responsibility of running Chambers and should always be your first point of call should you wish to discuss any management issues. Bernard took over leadership of Chambers in 2012 after having been Senior Clerk in another London common law set.

Prior to that he has managed a solicitor’s firm, clerked in another top London Chambers and worked for the CPS. His 30 years, in different aspects of the business, has given him an invaluable wealth of experience.

Bernard takes great pride in having built very strong relations with the region’s solicitors in the time he has been here and his drive is to treat all Chambers clients fairly and with professional courtesy.
