Moyler first entered the bar in 1982, having worked as a solicitors clerk in a small city firm. In 1986 he joined Brick Court, taking responsibility for the trolley-pushers. Meanwhile, at 18 years of age, Hawes had started at 12 King's Bench Walk before rapidly becoming senior clerk by the time he was 21.
Both became ensconced at Brick Court, splitting the junior diary between them. In some ways, Moyler and Hawes are the new boys on the block, because it wasn't until 1996 that head of chambers Christopher Clarke QC informed them that the set had parted company with its senior clerk, and that he wanted to offer them both the now vacant position. There is currently an administrative staff of 20 including nine full-time clerks.
Moyler and Hawes are paid a salary plus a bonus. In common with Blackstone Chambers, the set owes much of its success to its mix of commercial expertise with European and public skills.
