What the directories say about our support team

Client service: The clerking team is "very good and very responsive." The "excellent" senior clerk Clive Nicholls is praised as someone "who goes out of his way to assist solicitors and gives a really good insight into the market." (Legal 500 2017)

The service from the clerking team is of the very highest standard’ and ‘it is more business-focused than some other sets’. ‘The clerks are very obliging when clients have strange billing requirements and accommodating when last-minute advice is needed’. Furthermore, ‘they are all well informed about their barristers’ diaries and availability’, and ‘often go above and beyond for solicitors’. Chambers director Briget Harrison and senior clerk Clive Nicholls provide ‘invaluable support’; consultant Ian Bowie ‘understands what clients want in terms of quality, turnaround time and budget’; and assistant clerk John Davies is ‘particularly helpful’. (Chambers & Partners, 2017)
