Fraser began his career as a Junior Barristers’ Clerk at Wilberforce. He was promoted to Senior Practice Manager in April 2013.
Fraser is in charge of the management and development of the Junior QCs within Chambers, which includes client relations, management of their diaries, fee negotiation and marketing.
As a member of the Institute of Barristers’ Clerks (IBC), Fraser sits on its Management Committee, where he holds the position of Chancery Senior Clerk. As part of this committee, Fraser is heavily involved in the running of the annual IBC Conference. Fraser has completed the IBC BTEC in clerking and administration. Fraser has achieved a Level 5 Diploma in Leadership & Management with the Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM).
Fraser is highlighted in the most recent edition of The Legal 500 (2021) several times:
‘First class service. Definitely the best clerk and management team in our sphere. Fraser Geddes, Mark Rushton, Stewart Cameron and the team are consistently seeking feedback and ways to enhance their offering.’
‘All the clerks are good – up for a very special mention is Fraser Geddes – he is my main point of contact for anything – to discuss instructions of a junior or QC, to talk about fees and to discuss practicalities like service of documents and calls to the courts listing. Fraser always deals with you like you are the only firm they look after!’
‘Like the barristers, the Clerks at Wilberforce are second to none. They are friendly, professional and highly efficient. As a team, they are excellent but Fraser Geddes and Stewart Cameron are particular stars of the clerking world.’
The Legal 500 (2020) describes Fraser as ‘Forever going above and beyond’, and recommended for his ‘helpful, can-do approach’. ‘He is incredibly client-focused and will always do everything he can to accommodate.’
The Legal 500 (2019) highlights “the ‘standout’ Fraser Geddes”.
The Legal 500 (2017) says Fraser Geddes is “practical, responsive and commercially minded”,
The Legal 500 (2016) says Fraser Geddes “stands out for his warmth of personality and efficiency”,
In his spare time, Fraser enjoys cycling and running. He has completed a handful of Marathons (including London three times) and regularly takes part in triathlons. To add to his ever growing list of Half Ironman distance races, he successfully completed Ironman UK in 2019.
