The administration of St Philips Stone is focused around our team of experienced clerks and is crucial to the successful operation of our business. Our clerks are justifiably proud to provide a client-focused and responsive service, with efficient management and clear channels of communication, the quality of which has been recognised by the legal community and directories.

As modern day clerks, they recognise that it is essential for them to take an interest in our clients, to take the time to get to know them and their businesses, and to build strong relationships with the people involved. The team’s in-depth knowledge of the group’s barristers, familiarity with the court system and its officers, and understanding of the modern legal world help to create an environment of mutual trust where our clients’ needs can be explored, understood and met.
