In February 1986, Chambers moved to the current premises at 4-5 Gray’s Inn Square. The set was then headed by the commercial silk Richard Yorke QC, who established Chambers’ reputation in banking, commercial and regulatory law.

In the 1980s, Chambers developed its reputation as a leading public law set. Former members include Schiemann LJ (who was subsequently appointed to the European Court of Justice), Moses LJ (who became to first Chairman of the Independent Press Standards Organisation), Keene LJ, Sullivan LJ, Collins J and Ouseley J.
