The clerks' room is integral to the continued success of Brick Court Chambers.
Our clerks are knowledgeable, proactive and efficient. They have detailed understanding of the many courts and tribunals in which we practise. We have an open and flexible approach to fee negotiations.
Our joint senior clerks are Paul Dennison and Tony Burgess, who were appointed in 2018.
To ensure detailed knowledge of members of chambers' practices, the clerks at Brick Court Chambers are divided into teams. However, all of our clerks will be very comfortable discussing the practice of any member of chambers.
Individual contact details are below. Should you need to contact us urgently out of hours, firstname.lastname@example.org will alert all clerks to your query.
