Set overviews: England and Wales

At 3 Hare Court, ‘the barristers will always go out of their way to find time for solicitors or prepare advice, even at their busiest’. The set is strong across the civil law spectrum, with notable expertise in personal injury and travel law, and a growing civil fraud practice. It has ‘one of the best clerking teams in the business’, where ‘the clerks are very approachable and willing to go the extra mile’. ‘They could not be more helpful.’ Senior clerk James Donovan is ‘a delight to deal with’ and first junior clerk Toby Eales has ‘a can-do attitude which makes a solicitor’s job much easier’; ‘both make you feel as though you are part of the set’.
