‘The clerks have experience in this unique market and know how to provide a service to its international clients. Martin Secrett is recommended.’ .... ‘The clerks room is very good and Martin Secrett leads a professional and well-disposed team who are unfailingly helpful.’ (Legal 500, 2022)
"Brilliant at all levels. From the most senior director Martin Secrett to the most junior clerk, they have a real sense of the need to provide a professional service. They listen when they are asked for guidance on available personnel and are genuinely keen to know your views on the performance of members of chambers. If they cannot help, they are great at signposting to alternative sets. A thoroughly modern approach to business but with the old fashioned values of service to their users". (Legal 500, 2021)
"Chambers director Martin Secrett runs a smooth and very professional operation, and leads a team of clerks who are all very friendly and approachable." "Senior clerk Paul Outen and first junior clerk Russell Good are always available and accessible. They provide an excellent service." "Jordan Haisman and Max Bradley provide excellent backup to the more senior clerks, and make visitors to chambers feel at ease." (Chambers UK, 2021)
"The clerks are communicative and nothing is too much trouble for them. If a problem arises, the chances are they have dealt with it perfectly before you even know about it.” “Their clerks are very efficient, especially senior clerk Paul Outen.” Chambers director Martin Secrett leads the clerking team.(Chambers UK, 2020).
The ‘great’ service provided by the set’s clerking team is thanks to senior clerk Paul Outen’s leadership. ‘Paul is always willing to accommodate our needs and takes time to understand the nature of requests and act accordingly.’ Communication between the clerks and clients is ‘consistent and friendly’. Russell Good is the first junior clerk and Martin Secrett is chambers director. (Legal 500, 2020)
