Alec Colson, Partner, Taylor Walton LLP



"I have worked with 1 Essex Court over a number of years, both with a previous law firm and presently. I highly rate the Chambers as well as the efficiency and helpfulness of the Clerks in dealing with the papers and getting back quickly on cost estimates. The Barristers are very accessible for discussions on all cases. I have dealt with Jonathan Miller, Duncan Macpherson and Lisa Hatch, with all of whom I have had a very good working experience. Advice has been clear and practical with a good turnaround. My clients have been very pleased with the end results. Overall they are a very approachable set of Chambers, not at all pompous – a very friendly bunch that give each case the individual attention it deserves."
