Practice Management

Our practice management team has an in-depth understanding of the capabilities of members of chambers. It has an appreciation, based on experience, of the needs and expectations of the users of our services.

Members of the team are always on hand to discuss the specific expertise and availability of our barristers. If it is required, they can propose a multi-disciplinary team to handle the most complex and high value matters. Thereafter, they will ensure that careful diary management means that you will have ready access to those advising you. Naturally, we engage the latest software to ensure that communication and billing are managed promptly and smoothly.

The team is well known for the efficient, friendly and flexible service it provides.
