“I cannot conceive of having a better job than being a barrister; and I cannot imagine being happier or more fulfilled in another set of Chambers. Much of that is down to the care that we have taken in the past in our selection of bright, enthusiastic students who will be likely to join in and contribute to the very special mix that we have in Falcon Chambers” Guy Fetherstonhaugh Q.C. Joint Head of Falcon Chambers.
