Turner Parkinson LLP

The barristers I instruct are proactive; accessible and tactically astute. Most of all, litigation is about achieving good results for clients and they have a proven track record of delivering these. The clerking provided by Colin Perrin is excellent.

Danny Fitzgerald - Partner
Kuit Steinart Levy LLP

Our commercial litigation department at Linder Myers have had a long term positive experience of working with the chancery team of barristers as well as a very successful relationship working with Colin Perrin as their clerk. The barristers we use are all extremely approachable as well as talented and are keen to work with us as a team to find a commercially acceptable solution for our clients.

Peter Kaye - Partner
Linder Myers LLP

I have always been extremely impressed by the level of advocacy skills demonstrated by the team. They are consistently excellent in court, and can when required be formidable adversaries. They are very good at distilling complex legal arguments into accessible and well-judged submissions, and are tactically astute litigators.

Daniel Draper - Partner
Farleys Solicitors

The barristers whom I instruct are switched on, clever, pro-active and responsive. They appreciate that litigation has to produce tangible results for clients and they work hard with me to achieve that. I would not hesitate to recommend using them. A special mention for the clerk, Colin Perrin too - he works hard and delivers a great service.
