 Punching well above its weight, Thomas More Chambers is a common law set with an excellent array of barristers and an enviable international practice. The clerks are first rate’; ‘they go above and beyond to assist counsel, the instructing solicitors and ultimately, the client. In particular, chief clerk Stuart Sellen is a pleasure to deal with and provides a bespoke service, and senior civil clerk Craig Brown is efficient and helpful – nothing is too much trouble for him. Senior criminal clerk Clifford Strong is also a key contact.
