MLC

After working with barristers’ chambers for over 20 years, we understand that the traditional working model is changing. With increasing client expectations and staff needing to work away from chambers, it is crucial for chambers to ensure that they are equipped with the latest technology so they can keep pace with change.

Jim Stephenson, Partner, Thorley Stephensons
