1GC Family Law clerking team praised for client service

Chambers & Partners have recognised the clerking team at 1GC Family Law for their client service. Senior Clerk Paul Harris and First Junior Clerk, David McDonald, are particularly highly praised. 

1GC Family Law

"Following its recent move to stylish new premises in Lincoln’s Inn Fields, 1GC continues to impress at the Family Bar with its modern, client-centric approach to practice management. “The set has really upped its game,” says one solicitor, “and is now a class act: the team have spotted what solicitors are after and offer a very professional setup without compromising on being a friendly set full of people who are nice to deal with.” At the helm is the “excellent” Paul Harris, an experienced senior clerk but also a man who is said to bring a “young, innovative” and “modernising” ethos to chambers.

Sources say: “Paul really does go out of his way to try to accommodate us and ensure we’re happy with the service we’re getting.” 1GC has also welcomed Marie-Christine Willis to the set as Chambers Director. Together they lead a team whom solicitors find to be “fun, friendly and attentive” and “utterly professional,” and who are noted to be “particularly helpful with last minute, urgent matters.”

Clients tell us that the clerks “work very hard to build personal relationships with instructing solicitors,” and are “efficient” and “always know what they’re talking about.” First junior David McDonald deserves special mention as a “brilliant” clerk who “always provides a high-class service,” whilst interviewees feel that the set’s new offices are “amazing” and “absolutely enhance the first impression of chambers, and provide excellent conference facilities.” "

We are one of twelve sets acknowledged for their exceptional level of client service.
