Clerksroom Direct

In 2014, Stephen Ward had a ground-breaking idea that would modernise key legal processes; a way to cut third-party costs, minimise reams of paperwork, and save precious time.

Stephen Ward and his colleagues, two senior barristers, wanted to modernise the world of legal representation. Traditionally, barristers were challenged with working between court, chambers and at home, whilst juggling court cases involving solicitors, clerks and clients - and all underpinned by lengthy, paper-based processes.

Why rely on attending enormous – yet mostly empty – chambers buildings, when everything that a barrister needs could be made available online, providing instant access at home and at court?

Clerksroom Direct wanted to create a solution for barristers where everything was available remotely and securely, to enable them to upload vital paperwork and manage case briefs, files, appointments, and invoices. No need for expensive clerking fees and no need for a physical office.

Working in partnership with morphsites, was launched in 2014, becoming the world’s first website allowing members of the public to directly find barristers.


Groundbreaking direct public access allowed the choosing and instructing of legal professionals across the UK as never before. Crucially, barristers and mediators could save time with a highly-streamlined digital approach to case management that really worked. The site began attracting high volumes of visitors, and opportunity generation quickly exceeded all expectations.

“I have been working with the team at morphsites for 18 years now as they are just simply brilliant. The key to working with any development team is to have a clear and well thought out brief. We have worked on large, complex systems, payment processing systems, API integration and many other smaller projects, all with great success. The entire team complement each other which is great when you need a full team for a project, no matter how large or small. I would recommend morphsites without hesitation. Great team, great company.”

Design & Branding

Reaching a new target audience

Clerksroom had been offering services to solicitors for decades, but wanted to reach members of the public with their little known public access offering. This service gives members of public the ability to instruct barristers directly without using a solicitor.

The new branding had to be clear, concise and trustworthy to reflect Clerksroom Direct's values.

Our imaginative design team offered several different options to launch the new brand.

Bespoke development

Bespoke landing pages

It was important to ensure the website development met the polished look and feel of the Clerksroom Direct brand. Bespoke landing pages were built to convert visitors into paying customers.

Bespoke case management system

Built from the ground up, we worked closely with Clerksroom Direct's team to build an efficent case management system to handle inbound leads. This system allows their team to work from anywhere with the internet and a phone.

Built to scale

Clerksroom Direct's website has been developed to grow with needs of their business over the next 5 years.
