Set overviews: England and Wales

Enterprise Chambers is an β€˜excellent set’, noted for its strength in Chancery, commercial, property, banking and insolvency law. Having taken in several former members of Guildhall Chambers, the set’s commercial practice has been strengthened, particularly with the addition of Stephen Davies QC. In London, senior clerk Michael Ireland is β€˜proactive and responds well to pressure’ and Luke Daws is a key name in the team. On the North Eastern Circuit, Joanne Caunt (β€˜nothing fazes her’) and Ellen Cockcroft are β€˜very professional and understand exactly what solicitors are looking for’. Collectively, the clerks’ room β€˜provides a first-class service’. Offices in: London, Leeds, Newcastle
