Our clerking team is well respected for their appreciation of the commercial pressures under which instructing professionals and lay clients work, and their candid assessment of counsels’ suitability for new instructions. Chambers UK Directory has singled them out for comment with 'The clerks .... have impressed many with their "understanding of the nature of deadlines and the need for a responsive commercial service.'" and the latest edition of Legal 500 (2019) quotes "I trust the clerks at Maitland implicitly to provide me with the most appropriate level of barrister for the work required." Previous editions have said that they deliver a 'stellar service’, ..... provide smooth and efficient support’ and ‘nothing is too much trouble for them’. ‘They have deep knowledge of the individual skills of their barristers and are able to add a valuable insight the moment they pick up the phone.

The clerking team enjoy an excellent relationship with listing staff in all civil divisions, and their approachability and accessibility ensure that the process of instructing Maitland Chambers is efficient and uncomplicated."
