Tom Hills is 2nd Junior Clerk and started his career in Chambers in August 2012 following the completion of his A-Levels from Haywards Heath College in Law and Modern History. He has completed his BTEC Advanced Award in Chambers Administration for Barristers’ Clerks.

Our chambers remain in the top twenty sets for client service in the legal directories, described in the 2021 guides as “the best clerking team I have dealt with. They are efficient and supportive. They go the extra mile to provide an excellent and responsive service.”
