5 Paper Buildings is a leading criminal set that has gone from strength to strength in recent years. Members have also widened their experience, meaning there is now ‘an excellent choice of counsel in the professional discipline arena’. Chambers is also strong in the fields of consumer law and criminal fraud. Dale Jones is ‘one of the best senior clerks in London’; ‘he always provides an exceptional service to clients – lay or professional’, and leads a team that is ‘exactly what you would want – helpful, efficient and friendly’. The service the clerks provide is ‘first class’; ‘they know what clients want’ and ‘if your first-choice barrister is not available, you know you will not be offered anyone who is not excellent’.
