"I am delighted that, once again, Chambers has been recognised as one of the leading sets in the country, together with individual practitioners within it. It is, I think, a reflection of a number of things: our consistent focus on ensuring that we recruit against very exacting standards; the fact that our structure ensures that all members specialise, thus developing very high levels of expertise in their chosen field; and a support staff, especially the clerks, whom our clients value because they understand their needs and always go the extra mile." James Townsend, Head of Chambers
