Weir House Chambers

Weir House Chambers is not the traditional set of barristers' chambers. Chambers was established by Gerard McDermott QC who has approached the Bar in a different way for a number of years. He employs Legal Assistants to assist with the preparation of cases as part of his commitment to helping those who have completed the Bar Finals. This provides the aspiring barrister with excellent experience which will prove invaluable when applying for pupillage. Moreover, this innovative set has created a cost effective and personalised service for solicitors.

We approach practice in a different way and are ready for the changes that the Bar is due to face. Our main areas of practice include catastrophic personal injury, disease, travel law, international law and employment.
