Having previously worked at Devereux between 1999 and 2006, Laurence re-joined in 2014. The intermittent 8 years were spent as a Team Leader at Old Square Chambers.

Laurence puts his significant clerking experience to excellent use and has responsibility for managing a team of three Silks and nine Juniors whose practices cover a wide range of Chambers' areas of expertise; but have a definite 'Commercial' flavour to them. In addition, he provides valuable commercial support to chambers as a whole and is an essential part of the clerking function which is identified by Chambers UK (2019) as “ of the best clerking teams in the country. They always provide a very personable and friendly service”

He has an unwaivering passion for football, cricket, golf and boxing. He's a regular at The Oval and (for his sins) Selhurst Park. He is a qualified FA level 1 coach and is manager, coach, taxi driver and chief bottle-washer for is son's under 10s side, Bromleians United.
