CLIENT: Adam Shaw, Solicitor
COMPANY/FIRM: TV Edwards Solicitors LLP
TESTIMONIAL: “I have instructed 23 Essex Street for a long time and I have always been impressed by the service they offer. In the first instance, the clerks and support staff are hardworking, approachable and organised. I am always impressed by counsel who I instruct. They work efficiently on the briefs and keep in good contact with instructing solicitors. You always have the feeling that they provide a fantastic level of client care and feedback from my client’s has always been very positive.  I really do rate 23 Essex Street.”

CLIENT: Callum Haddow, Director
COMPANY/FIRM: Saunders Solicitors Ltd
TESTIMONIAL: “I have instructed 23 Essex Street Chambers on numerous occasions and have always received a high quality and professional service from them. The clerks are extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and ensure that cases are covered by suitable Counsel with a minimum of fuss, something that is much appreciated by solicitors. The barristers I have dealt with have demonstrated a commitment to client care and have provided honest and proper advice to clients. I will continue to instruct 23 Essex Street and have no hesitation recommending them to others.”

CLIENT: Lisa Shacklock, Partner
COMPANY/FIRM: Turner Parkinson LLP
TESTIMONIAL: “I have worked with the Commercial Team at 23 Essex Street since they were formed and with a number of their barristers and their clerk Colin Perrin in previous chambers. I have always found the Counsel which I have worked with to be both excellent advocates but also very commercial when in conference with clients. Tactically and strategically they are strong and they are often well liked by clients, which is of course immensely important. Colin Perrin is one of the best clerks in Manchester and nothing is too much trouble. This makes the job of any solicitor much easier.”

CLIENT: Jeremy Steele, Partner
TESTIMONIAL: “"Our Real Estate Litigation Team have instructed the barristers at 23ES regularly for a number of years now - we have always found the barristers to be quick to get to grips with the issues, pro-active, practical and commercial. They recognise that litigation is about achieving results for clients and they work hard with us to achieve those results. They are also user friendly and team players, making them a pleasure to work with. The clerking is also very good.”
