One of the Bar’s longest serving clerks has been asked to step down after more than 40 years service as his set Enterprise Chambers embarks on a modernisation programme.
The set’s attempted foray into the 21st Century means that Barry Clayton ends a 36-year career at Enterprise after first becoming a clerk in 1962. Clayton was appointed as the set’s practice development manager in 2000.
Under the leadership of Bernard Weatherill QC, the only silk at Enterprise who took over heading the chambers from Anthony Mann QC, an eminent chancery barrister, who was appointed a judge in January, the set is hoping to update its image.
Caroline Hutton, a barrister at the set, said: “Things have moved. We now need to focus more on more technical marketing [than what is being provided by Clayton]. With great reluctance we have asked him to leave.”
