Bernie Hyatt retires

06th Aug 2021

Bernie Hyatt, 7KBW’s wonderful joint Senior Clerk, has decided to retire. He joined 7KBW in 1989 and has led the clerking team ever since, initially as sole and latterly as joint Senior Clerk. He built up the clerking team at 7KBW into the enormously friendly, efficient and unequalled room that it has been for so many years and remains. It is no exaggeration to say that the clerking team at 7KBW is probably the best among all the Commercial sets, without exception, and that this has been due in large part to Bernie Hyatt. It is reflected not least by the fact that the senior echelons have been with 7KBW for so very many years and by their increasing strength and depth. Greg Leyden, with whom Bernie shared the joint clerkship over the past years, now leads the team. Gavin Kealey QC
