The Clerks’ Room at One Essex Court is universally regarded as one of the elite operations at the Bar. Led by our Senior Clerk, Darren Burrows and divided into teams to provide a dedicated service to distinct groups, clients can be assured of receiving appropriate recommendations, and where counsel for opposing parties are based in Chambers, the structure ensures that confidentiality can be respected and maintained.
The clerks at One Essex Court have an unrivalled reputation for flexibility, honesty and transparency, particularly in relation to charging. Where estimated charges have been provided, barristers and their clerks will endeavour to keep within those parameters, assuming that no difficulties or unexpected delays are encountered. Additional charges may apply to extra work arising out of such complications, but where possible the clerks will inform you in advance if an estimate may be significantly exceeded. Both the clerks and the barristers are responsive where a client might be facing financial hardship, and are willing where appropriate, to consider alternative funding structures.
