Garry Farrow to leave chambers after an amazing 43 years of service



Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Our wonderful Consultant Clerk, Garry Farrow is leaving Chambers at the end of the month. He has decided to enjoy time away from London and spend more time in Winchester where he lives.

Many of you have worked closely alongside Garry over the years and he is our longest serving member of the Clerks’ room. Garry started life as the office junior nearly 43 years ago aged just 16 and has over the years clerked for the civil, criminal and family teams. He has guided the practices of many of our senior members of chambers and been a source of support to newcomers in the Clerks’ room.

His warmth, sense of humour, ability to juggle the diary to everyones’ satisfaction and his close links with Court staff will be remembered and missed by us all.

We wish him well in the next chapter of his life.
