We are also very proud that the hard work of our practice management team has has also been recognised.

Chambers are always efficient and professional. They will always do whatever they can to assist us in securing representation for clients, even at very short notice.

The chambers are very highly recommended as they are easy to contact and response accordingly.

The service is exceptional and the clerks are very efficient. Most notably, Stuart Walker, has been of great assistance on a number of cases, finding counsel at late notice and liaising well with us.

The clerks are fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble for Stuart and his team and their fees are very competitive.

And finally, many thanks to all our clients who took the time provide feedback and participate in the Legal 500’s research this year.
