"They're very good. In terms of speed, response times, knowledge of practices and making alternative suggestions, they're excellent." "They're absolutely superb - extremely switched-on, highly responsive, and helpful to a huge degree." Chambers UK, 2015

Terra Firma’s Clerking team are recognised for their knowledgeable, efficient and friendly service. They are the first point of contact for all enquiries and possess an in-depth knowledge of our members and the services they offer. Our clerks understand the needs of clients and their professional advisors and will help identify the most appropriate counsel for each client. Because members of Terra Firma Chambers frequently appear on different sides of the same dispute they understand the need for confidentiality and will ensure that there is a proper degree of separation which will avoid any conflict of interest.

Whatever your requirements may be, our clerks will point you in the right direction to allow you to make the most informed choice. In addition, they can:

  • Arrange appointments for meetings and consultations with our members, and for our members to appear at courts or other tribunals, inquiries or mediations
  • Arrange timescales for pieces of written work
  • Negotiate fees
  • Answer any other queries or questions.

If you are not a Scottish solicitor you may still be able to instruct our members direct (please see the Faculty of Advocates rules of direct access). Direct instruction can have significant advantages in cost and speed.

Our clerking team can be contacted between 8am and 5.30pm, Monday to Friday; their details are below. Should you need to contact us outside of office hours, please email our Practice Manager Emma Potter.
