Our Clerks

They continue to attract recognition for their professionalism and ability.

“Paul Jennings is excellent and runs a tight ship.”

“The clerks are very easy to deal with and it’s easy to develop good relationships with them. You can be confident they will find the right counsel for any problem and they are very responsive and approachable.”

Chambers UK 2018

“Senior clerk Paul Jennings is able ‘to match complexity of matter and resources of funds to a suitable barrister every time’. ‘He takes time to get to know instructing solicitors’ and is ‘always able to get things done, even in the trickiest of situations’. First junior Dan Coote also reaps praise: ‘he always ensures a rapid response and if a barrister is not available, he provides a replacement – not just someone who is available but someone who is suitable for the matter at hand’. As a team, all the clerks are ‘top-notch’ and ‘ready to go the extra mile for clients’.”

The Legal 500 2017

“The clerking is really good. Senior clerk Paul Jennings is someone you can ring and have an upfront chat with. He says ‘leave it with me’ and comes back with precisely what you’ve asked for. He understands exactly how this game works.”

5 Stone Buildings is one of our go-to sets. Their rates are relatively reasonable and the clerking is great.
