Clerks & Administration

The clerks are skilled in recommending particular practitioners for particular cases and are happy to discuss solicitors' and lay clients' requirements. They are ready and willing to discuss fees and provide estimates. This can be difficult without sight of papers and early delivery of briefs is encouraged where possible and much appreciated. Whilst each clerk is dedicated to a particular practice group they are also experienced and are able to assist with all enquiries. Our multi-disciplinary approach to clerking is further testament to our goal of providing the best possible service to those who instruct us.

The Clerks' room and switchboard is staffed between 8.30am and 6.00pm from Monday to Thursday and 8.30am to 5.30pm on a Friday, although arrangements can be made to open later during the evenings and on Saturdays and Sundays. When the Clerks' room is closed there is an answerphone service in operation; messages are regularly checked and the appropriate action taken.
