Clerks’ Room

Our clerks run a highly specialised set of chambers and the service offering goes far beyond the level usually expected of barristers’ chambers.

Quite apart from ensuring that exactly the right barrister is retained for any client matter we offer our professional clients superior case management support through our knowledgeable and very experienced clerks.

HNW Guide 2018 writes: “The set is highly regarded for its clerking operation. “The clerks are very good and very efficient,” says an interviewee. Another source explains: “They bend over backwards to find someone for you when the preferred barrister is not available and they maintain very good relationships with the courts and solicitors.” Senior clerk Keith Plowman is described as “a stalwart who runs the set very efficiently.”


"The clerks - and deputy senior clerk Mark Schofield in particular - are a really good bunch of people who are always willing to help and enhance the set." "Senior clerk Keith Plowman is very sensible, extremely helpful and always does the best for both solicitor and client."
