Following a restructuring of Chambers’ senior operational management team, it is with sadness that we confirm that Geoff Carr, our Senior Clerk, will be leaving Fourteen on 26 August 2016 after sixteen years of loyal service. We want to pass on our sincere thanks to Geoff for his commitment to Chambers over the years. He has played an important role in helping Fourteen become a leading family law set and his clerking skills have been recognised by both his colleagues and the legal directories alike. Geoff will be working in Chambers as usual up to 26 August 2016. After that date, please contact the Clerks' Room or your usual contact at Chambers. Chambers will be seeking to appoint a Practice Director as part of the restructured senior operational management team and will confirm further details of this appointment as soon as practicable.
