  • Very interesting. Reflects the market perception that Keating was losing ground to and being caught up by chasing sets like 4 Pump Court (in particular), 4 New Square and 39 Essex Street.

  • Keating Chambers is one of the two pre-eminent construction sets.It has considerable strenght in depth.It is always a pleasure dealing with the clerks who are most user friendly.
    Having dealt with him as well,I know Paul is experienced in dealing with high profile counsel and a high profile set . I am sure will further enhance the clerking team at Essex Street.

  • In addition to its expertise in the field of construction, one of the most impressive things about Keating has always been its front of house team (ie clerks and receptionists). Always willing to help. I am sure that Paul Cooklin will only add to this and enhance the service that one has come to expect from Keating.

  • In my view Paul Cooklin is one of the best senior clerks/ practice managers at the Bar and his recruitment is a major coup for Keating and, no doubt, a sad loss to 3-4 South Square - would not surprise me if there was a transfer fee involved.

  • From experience, Keating has remained the most progressive and user-friendly of the specialist construction law sets - due in no small part to the clerking team. The addition of Paul, with his reputation, serves to demonstrate that this will continue. Very interesting - and it will no doubt keep the other sets on their toes.
