Reflections

The chambers environment is like a family environment. I’ve worked in different sets of chambers since leaving school, which has given me a fantastically varied experience and a real understanding of how chambers operate and what members need.

“Everyone can see the benefits of a modern approach.”

Serjeants’ Inn feels very modern in comparison to many other sets of chambers. There’s a progressive approach which really promotes a good working atmosphere and a sleek, efficient service. It sets the tone, everyone can see the benefits of a modern approach.

Team work is crucial and the open plan layout, with barristers, management, clerks and staff all on one floor, really helps with communication.
