Chris Downes

Practice Manager

Chris has been clerking since 2002 when he began his career at a large common law set before joining Devereux at the beginning of 2008.

During his career at Devereux he has managed almost every member’s practice and is therefore perfectly placed to help clients find the right counsel. He currently closely manages a team of 13 barristers ranging in seniority, from newly qualified junior to QC, across all areas of chambers practice.

Recognised for Client Service by Chambers UK 2018, Chris (and Glenn Billenness) are “fantastic clerks.” In the most recent Legal 500 directory Chris (along with colleague Cyrus Biggs) are noted as being 'very efficient and on the ball.’

Chris achieved the IBC B-TEC award in Chambers administration.
