The ‘unsung heroes’ of the property Bar, Selborne Chamberspunches well above its weight’ in property disputes thanks to ‘good strength in depth and quality across the board from the very junior to QC level’. In the words of one source: ‘They don’t cost the earth and their quality represents superb value for money.’ In recent news, Edward Bennion-Pedley joined chambers from 42 Bedford Row. The ‘superb’ clerks’ room ‘truly sets chambers apart from any other’ and ‘couldn’t be rated higher’ by solicitors. The ‘slick, professional, top-notch’ clerks have ‘a sensible, pragmatic approach to fees’ and ‘do not over promise in the way some chambers do.’ Senior clerk Paul Bunting ‘provides an unparalleled, impeccable service’, ‘often going the extra mile for instructing solicitors’. Co-senior clerk Darren Madle is ‘first class’; ‘he will move mountains to assist at the eleventh hour – shifting diaries to accommodate urgent instructions, his help is often invaluable in securing appropriate counsel for a given instruction’. First junior Oliver Ventura is ‘incredibly helpful and always tries to accommodate, even in difficult circumstances’. ‘Friendly’ receptionist Laurie Davies is also highlighted by clients as she ‘can always be counted on to assist if needed’.
