“Top tier clerks – they are quick to respond, commercial, understand the law and offer a first-class service.” (The Legal 500 2021)
Winners of “Set of the Year” at the Chambers Bar Awards 2020, the Clerking Team is led by Senior Clerk, William Meade, assisted by Deputy Senior Clerk, Graham Smith and Senior Team Leader, Paul Adams. They each practice manage their respective team of barristers and oversee the clerking function of Chambers.
They are supported by a team of experienced clerks and two junior clerks, as well as our annexe manager in Bristol. The Clerking Team will be pleased to discuss all aspects of our members’ practices, suitability and availability of counsel, their fees and any other aspect of Old Square Chambers life. We strive to form strong working relationships with our clients, with open lines of communication playing a fundamental part in understanding our clients’ requirements and tailoring our services accordingly. Furthermore, we recognise that the approach of our clerking service has played a significant part in Chambers’ continued growth and presence as a successful set in the market place.
The clerks can be contacted between 8.00am to 7.00pm, Monday to Friday on either their direct lines or by dialling 020 7269 0300. In the event that you need to speak to a clerk outside of these hours please contact us on 07970 649755.
“The clerks really understand each barrister’s strengths and are able to give you a good account of who is best placed to take on a case.” (Chambers & Partners 2021)
