Senior clerk David Hockney and his deputy, John Keegan, ‘run a great clerking team’ that is ‘a cut above all other sets’. The clerks are ‘responsive to requests for assistance; open to considering varied arrangements for instruction, and thoroughly 21st century in their use of technology and means of communications’. Legal 500 2020

“The clerks at Monckton are always there when I need them and always seem to be on top of our matters.” “You get a professional service from the set’s clerks – they have gone above and beyond for us.” “They are really brilliant and really responsive clerks who are very down to earth, easy to speak to and sensible on fees and timings.” “The clerks are very efficient, incredibly responsive and at the top of their game.” “I’ve found their clerking service to be excellent; the clerks are able to respond quickly and deal with matters, even if they arise at the last minute.”
