Will joined Clerksroom in 2013 fresh to clerking and is educated to degree level. Will has had a varied working background but has found his calling becoming a valued member of our diary clerking team and is highly regarded by our members.
One of the really unique things about Clerksroom is its people – that’s what makes working here so great and I would honestly say that my experience of Will is that he is like a “stick of rock” - he has Clerksroom running all the way through him and is a breath of fresh air! I have been at Clerksroom for about 3 years now and he has been a real support for me personally. He has helped make what was not an easy transition from private practise to the bar much easier and much more enjoyable. He has always been a huge support for me in my role as Counsel and my clients; he is proactive and very respectful and professional in his dealings with all parties, yet at the same time he has managed to also achieve the correct balance of wit, humour and empathy (which is a real skill…). Nothing is ever too much trouble – if I need something doing, he will do it (if he can) and all of this has given him the integrity he has today, not just as a 1st class Clerk, but also on a personal level as well. Will’s love for Clerksroom shows in his work and many of my clients have commented on his service and their relationships with him and in my book he is a wonderful advertisement for Chambers.
Will has a cool head and works well under pressure providing excellent communication and attention to detail. Will thrives on the challenges presented on a daily basis, has a positive attitude towards problem solving and is always willing to help other members of the Clerksroom Team.
Will has worked closely with Courtel Communications to improve the current Courtserve System for the Daily Court Listings Check. As a direct result of this the time taken to check the Court Lists has been significantly reduced. Will has also written a detailed training manual on this crucial daily task.
More recently Will has been directly involved with Advanced Legal and Morphsites to develop a cutting edge automated booking process.
