Clerks & Administration
Chambers maintains the high standards that enabled us to become the first chambers in the UK to be granted the BarMark (an initiative that was proposed by the Bar Council and awarded by the British Standards Institute). We are re-assessed regularly to ensure that the levels of service and client care we provide comply with the International Standard for Quality Management Systems.
Our team is hand-picked and led by the experienced and well-regarded Guy Williams, who has been with Chambers since 1983. Guy is supported by Emma Makepeace who has over 25 years’ experience of clerking.
The clerks at 25 Bedford Row are committed to the consistent provision of a high-quality service based on their extensive knowledge and experience of:
- matching the right advocate to the individual case;
- competitive fee negotiation;
- the importance of continuity of representation; and
- the development of successful business relationships with our clients.
Out of Hours Service
We operate an out of hours emergency clerking service. If you require this service, please contact Charlie Gardner on 020 7067 1508 or Gemma McGee on 020 7067 1509.
Our Administration Manager, Varuna Askoolum, is your contact for all non-clerking matters. Varuna has responsibility for the management of all administrative, financial and operational aspects of Chambers.
The clerks room are the backbone of chambers. They are without doubt second-to-none. They never let you down.
