Behind Every Successful Barrister…

Our practice management team takes care of the operational, commercial and financial aspects of our work, with a particular focus on delivering excellent client care.

The team is led by Director of Clerking, Steve Sheridan, who ‘runs a tight ship’ (Chambers UK 2022).

Steve is supported by Senior Practice Managers, James Tidnam, who is described as ‘readily available [and] flexible’ (Chambers UK 2022) and Stuart Ritchie.

Legal 500 2022 describe the wider clerking team as being ‘consistently helpful’, with Chambers UK 2022 citing that ‘the clerking service is wonderful: it is prompt and efficient and it offers great value’.

You will certainly notice this approach in your dealings with us, whether you are making an initial enquiry, seeking a case update, or relying on us to liaise with your expert witnesses.
