Members of chambers’ practices are managed by a team of friendly and approachable clerks. They will be able to assist you in the selection of counsel and other aspects of instructing and working with the barristers in chambers. They will also liaise with Courts to assist in the listing of cases.
Chambers is frequently involved in litigation in which both parties instruct members of chambers. The clerking team have systems in place to prevent any problems arising from such a situation.
Chambers’ clerks are regularly praised by the leading legal directories:
Chambers and Partners
“The clerks are very good and helpful. Nick Hill is usually the one we deal with; he is really excellent, extremely experienced and has his finger on the pulse. Nick is friendly and has a can-do attitude.” “The staff there are brilliant; Nick Hill is the senior clerk and he is a smooth operator who always knows what is going on.” “A sharp and an excellent team.” Chambers and Partners 2022

There are no weak links and Tim Fairburn and David Court are similarly professional and adept at herding barristers and lending their insights and expertise as to the court procedures.’ ‘Nick, Tim and David are always extremely helpful. It is possible to have an open discussion with them on counsel’s availability and costs which makes instructing members of the set so much easier. They are responsive to any request and always try to be accommodating.’ Legal 500 2021
