Derek Sutton

Deputy Senior Clerk

2012 to present:

1994 – 2012:

Deputy Senior Clerk, Blackstone Chambers

Clerk, Blackstone Chambers




I started clerking at Blackstone as a school leaver and I have developed my career here. I am proud to have contributed to the success of Chambers over the last 18 years.

With significant experience in day to day clerking, undertaking the acceptance and distribution of work, diary management and fee negotiation, I understand Chambers’ clients’ expectations of our barristers and the service we provide. In addition to these day to day matters, I assist Gary Oliver, our Senior Clerk, in practice development and client relationships.

Outside work, I enjoy a varied social life and am a keen football fan. I am a Spurs season ticket holder.
