Set overviews: England and Wales

Well regarded across the civil law spectrum, Ely Place Chambers is ‘a very good set’ that provides ‘a one-stop solution for virtually all legal needs’ and ‘a personal service that other chambers all too frequently fail to provide’. The clerks are ‘always responsive’, ‘clear on costs’ and ‘very approachable’; they ‘ensure work is turned around when required’. ‘All are a credit to the set, without exception, and will go the extra mile for you, even with impossible requests.’ Running the clerks’ room alongside Christopher Drury, the ‘exceptional’ Richard Sheehan is singled out as ‘collaborative in his approach’.
