Outstanding setPump Court Chambers is ‘well-rounded‘ with ‘strength in depth‘ across family law, including matrimonial finance work. ‘Their baby barristers are great for the more simple cases and their more experienced barristers are superb for the more complex matters,‘ said one source. Other practice areas of note include international child abduction, as well as expertise in non-accidental injuries, and sexual abuse instructions, along with crime, regulatory, property, commercial, and employment law. In recent chambers news, Sarah Jones took silk in 2019. Senior clerk Tony Atkins is ‘loyal and supportive of his instructing solicitors. He will do whatever he can to make counsel available or to resolve any minor issues. His approach is innovative to the running of a barristers’ set as he never takes instructions for granted.’ Atkins leads the ‘fantastic‘ clerks’ room which he ‘runs like a well-oiled machine to deliver a brilliant service‘ and ‘make this set what it is‘. ‘They can always provide me with counsel of different experience to meet all client’s needs. They are also very good value for money as compared with other London sets,’ said one instructing solicitor. ‘Exceptional‘ senior family clerk Sean Gentleman ‘brings new ideas and excellent service‘ . ‘Excellent‘ family clerk Charlotte Horn is also worthy of note, as is Jordon King who is ‘an emerging clerk who delivers great service, is knowledgeable, and extremely helpful‘, and the ‘very efficient and helpful‘ James Goodman; ‘they go the extra mile to meet clients’ needs‘. Other clerks of note include senior criminal clerk Tony George and the ‘approachable and friendly‘ senior civil clerk Jonathan Cue, who ‘always help with chambers enquiries‘.
