Our clerks enjoy an excellent reputation across the profession which, we believe, is second to none.

Legal 500 2020 says: Chief clerk Stuart Sellen ‘runs a tight ship and is entirely client-focused’. He oversees a ‘fantastic’ clerks’ room that is described by solicitors as ‘reliable, pleasant, polite, and accommodating’‘Knowledgable and proactive’ senior civil clerk Craig Brown ‘provides a first-rate clerking service; he is a consummate professional and will pull out every stop to accommodate clients and solicitors’. Senior criminal clerk Clifford Strong and junior clerks Tony Meates and Jack Phillips complete the team. The team is ‘highly efficient and responsive’ and solicitors have ‘no hesitation’ in recommending this set. 

Over the years our clients have come to rely upon the frank and dedicated assistance which our Chief Clerk Stuart Sellen has been able to provide.

Our clerks are always happy to discuss solutions to any litigation or advisory problem, and can often suggest an innovative approach which ensures that our clients retain control and receive an economic and efficient service.
