Fenners Chambers

Although the majority of cases we handle can be resolved without going to court there will always be a minority that do require attendance at court. Some we can deal with remotely from our office but others may require the assistance of a barrister. If you find yourself in this unfortunate position we have made an alliance with Fenners Chambers to provide a top quality barrister for a realistic and competitive fee.

The Legal 500 recognises Fenners as the leading barristers’ chambers in the East of England. From their base in Cambridge they work regularly throughout the East of England, the northern Home Counties and London. They travel to courts anywhere in England and Wales. Some members have international practices.

They offer expertise in eight main areas of law: commercial law; crime; employment; family law; personal injury; property law; probate & inheritance; and public law.

Each barrister at Fenners practises as a committed individual lawyer - not as part of a large law firm - but by working together they offer a breadth and depth of legal advice and advocacy unrivalled in the East. Their work is overseen by its own Practice Group, which meets in the chambers to pool ideas, share expertise and plan its development. This group is headed up by Paul Green, Fenners Senior Clerk, who will be your first point of contact when selecting an appropriate barrister for your case.

Paul Green - Senior Clerk

Paul has extensive experience in the development of barristers’ chambers and barristers’ practices.

Paul became one of the youngest senior clerks in London in 1982 before moving to Essex as senior clerk to chambers in Chelmsford. In 1997, Paul returned to London and was subsequently appointed Chambers Director of one of the largest chambers in the country.

Attracted by its quality and potential, Paul joined Fenners as our senior clerk in 2007. Since then, Paul has been instrumental in developing Fenners to the point where it is ranked as the top set in the East of England by the Legal 500, and contains 17 barristers recognised as specialists in their fields by the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners directories. Paul is Team Leader for the Civil and Family clerking teams and deals with instructions direct from business and members of the public.

The day of the all-rounder at the Bar is past. Many lawyers within Fenners practice in just one area of law. Some combine practice in areas of law that often go together, such as property and inheritance, employment and commercial law, or crime and family. Lawgistics are happy to have this wealth of experience to offer clients.

Our primary barrister within Fenners is Mike Magee who has an engineering background and gained much experience in motor trade cases acting for our clients.
