Practice Management / Clerks
Clerking/Practice Management Team of the Year – The Legal 500 UK Awards 2020
Our clerking team has a pre-eminent reputation for professionalism and friendliness. Through training, assessment and use of the most modern and highly developed administration systems at the Bar, we work to ensure that all cases are handled in an efficient, effective and prompt way. We never compromise on the reliability of our service to clients.
A strong feature of Wilberforce Chambers’ clerking team is that even though it is comprised of four teams: Senior QC’s, Junior QC’s, Senior Juniors and Juniors, it is effectively one working team. Strong lines of communication ensure that our clients’ needs are met without delay, on every occasion. Our clerks are easily accessible and always happy to discuss the experience, suitability and availability of Counsel.
Sources praise the team as “forward-thinking, friendly and approachable,” adding that “the clerks are all on the ball and have details of the matter to hand – the tendency at some sets is that only specific clerks will discuss a particular matter, and it is refreshing that this type of rigid approach is not followed at Wilberforce.” In short, “the clerking team is fantastic, they are extremely efficient, know their barristers very well and have a good handle on their skill sets and offer quick turnaround on requests.” Chambers UK, 2021
“All of the clerks at Wilberforce offer an excellent service. They make it their business to get to know solicitors on a personal level and are very approachable. They know their solicitors and barristers well and are therefore in an excellent position to match solicitors and barristers appropriately.” The Legal 500 UK, 2021
