Tradition of excellence
Keating Chambers was named after its Head of Chambers in 1993, Donald Keating QC, author of the leading text-book ‘Keating on Building Contracts’, but has been providing high quality advice and advocacy in construction law for over 50 years. It has produced a number of eminent judges in that time: Lord Dyson (Master of the Rolls), Sir Anthony May(former President of the Queen’s Bench Division), Sir Patrick Garland (Former judge of the QBD), Sir Vivian Ramsey and Sir Peter Coulson (judges of the TCC). The combination of traditional legal excellence with innovative commercially-focussed thinking and extensive construction experience explains why barristers from Keating Chambers represent a natural choice for solicitors and clients requiring genuine specialists.
