The chambers director of specialist crime set Queen Elizabeth Building has retired after nearly 40 years at the set.
`Michael Greenaway, 61, said that despite thoroughly enjoying his 37 years at the set he is looking forward to retiring.`He had intended to retire last year but members persuaded him to stay on.`To get away from clerking, the chambers director post was created for him. This comprised overseeing the running of the practice and a PR role for barristers receiving solicitors' instructions. He will not be replaced as chambers director.`Greenaway said: "I have never not enjoyed working in the Temple and being a barrister's clerk. There are no down sides to it. I just wanted to build up the set and luckily the chambers had a good reputation."`He joined the set in 1964 when there were just six barristers and the well-known crime specialist Christmas Humphreys was head of chambers.
