“The set is particularly well recognised for the high standard of its clerking, described by sources as “excellent” and “efficient and friendly.” “Their clerks are probably the best around; they are experienced, long established and they build good relationships with clients. They get the job done,” says one market peer, highlighting senior clerk Anthony Hall as “very organised and business-minded”.” ~ Chambers High Net Worth 2016
