Justin is Senior Clerk of the St Philips Business and Property Group, having joined chambers in 2011. He commenced his career as a Bar Clerk at 3 Fountain Court before moving to No 5 Chambers as Senior Practice Manager of their Commercial Team. With over 30 years’ experience in barristers’ chambers, Justin brings a wealth of knowledge and understanding to the role here.
“The role of the barrister’s clerk has changed a great deal since I first started in chambers. Although I’m ultimately accountable for the daily supervision of the clerking team, I work closely with senior members of St Philips Business and Property in the planning and development of the business and our members practices. Along with the administration and promotion of the practice teams across the group, my responsibilities also include the management and development of our client relationships. I believe listening to our clients and incorporating what they want from chambers into the services that we provide, is key to the success of our business and the long-term relationships that we aim to build with all of our clients. I’m very lucky to have a team around me which also buys into this philosophy and takes pride in the service that we provide.”
Married to a partner of a Top 20 UK Law Firm and with 3 growing boys, Justin’s time is free time is mostly spent ferrying them between rugby matches and helping run junior sides at Market Bosworth RFC. If a window does appear in his diary, he has been known to enjoy good quality restaurants where he can focus on his wife rather than liaising with her via e-mail. Justin is a member of the Institute of Barristers Clerks.
