Clerks' Room


Our clerks enjoy an excellent reputation across the profession which, we believe, is second to none. Led by Stuart Sellen, the clerking team is described by Legal 500 as ‘highly efficient and responsive’. Senior civil clerk Craig Brown and senior criminal clerk Clifford Strong are also key contacts. Solicitors have ‘no hesitation’ in recommending this set.

Over the years our clients have come to rely upon the frank and dedicated assistance which our Chief Clerk Stuart Sellen, and Christopher Hallett before him, have been able to provide.


We are delighted that the team is now further strengthened by the addition of Craig Brown, who takes responsibility for the Civil Team in chambers and complements our established clerks room ethos. Cliff Strong has responsibility for the Criminal Team.


Our clerks are always happy to discuss solutions to any litigation or advisory problem, and can often suggest an innovative approach which ensures that our clients retain control and receive an economic and efficient service.
