3 Paper Buildings (3PB) is a modern, progressive chambers with offices in Temple in London, Birmingham, Bristol, Oxford, Bournemouth and Winchester. Established in 1892, 3PB is one of the largest and longest established national sets with a well deserved reputation for providing a comprehensive, professional legal service. The head of chambers is Nigel Lickley QC.

Having grown to over 180 barristers, including 11 silks, 3PB operates as one chambers, providing a truly national service from its six well-equipped locations. Experienced and friendly staff advise clients on the most suitable counsel for each particular case, as well as discussing fees and providing estimates for anticipated work.

Chambers’ size and geographical spread means barristers advise on a wide range of legal work with meetings/conferences arranged at a geographically convenient office to suit the client. The set is fully accredited to provide CPD training and has been awarded Investor in People status and Quality Mark.

Our concept here was based on the fact there were a number of market misconceptions about 3PB. To acknowledge this we looked back through misconceptions of a legal nature that had developed into myths. From this the concept of 'believe only half of what you see and none of what you hear' was born.

By using bold typography and clean, simple illustrations we believe the piece has gone some way to redressing some of the misconceptions of this great set.
