Legal 500 2016

‘It is a very professional and close-knit set, which encourages a collegiate atmosphere in chambers and a team approach with clients’; ‘it also means one has access to pool of excellent counsel that share their experience and knowledge with each other’. For some, it is ‘a favoured set because of the approachability and service provided’. The clerks are ‘nothing short of extremely helpful’ and ‘on hand at all times, including out of hours’.

‘The combination of deep knowledge and expertise together with excellent client care is second to none.’ The ‘responsive and very helpful’ clerks’ room includes Steve Sheridan ‘one of the best clerks in the business’.
