Welcome Scott Baldwin

June 14, 2024

We are delighted to announce the appointment of nationally respected clerk Scott Baldwin to take up the role of Senior Clerk in our Liverpool Chambers. Commencing in post in May 2024, Scott has over 30 years of experience as a barristers’ clerk, with the last 17 years spent as the Chief Executive/Senior Clerk at St. Mary’s Chambers in Nottingham.

An expert in fees matters and member of the Bar Council’s Remuneration Committee and the Regulatory Group, during the pandemic Scott played a key role assisting the Family Law Bar Association (FLBA) in liaising with the Ministry of Justice and Legal Aid Agency (LAA) to ensure continuation of services in the family courts and payment of legal aid fees. He currently works with the LAA to develop improved processes and guidance and has appeared as a guest speaker for the LAA in their webinar Family High Cost Cases: Help Us Say Yes.

Chris Ronan is the Chief Executive at St John’s Buildings and recruited Scott for this role. “When I set out the requirements for the role there were three main criteria: a proven track record in developing barrister’s practices, considerable experience in managing the needs of professional clients, and strong ties to Liverpool and Merseyside. I am delighted that Scott has joined us as not only does he fit all of the criteria he is also a perfect match for the SJB vision, mission, and values.”

Scott said: “This was a huge opportunity to work in one of the most prestigious barristers’ chambers in the country, and one that I couldn’t pass up. It was clear that the approach SJB takes to wellbeing aligned with my own, and the results of the staff engagement survey provided clear evidence of that approach working. Having made my home in Liverpool three years ago I feel like I really belong now that I also work in the city. I’m excited by the possibilities of working for SJB to develop the Liverpool team and to further immerse myself in the culture of Liverpool”.
