Immediately on your right you will see a black and white timbered building. After a few paces there is an archway. Go through the arch, then you will see 9 Staple Inn in the top left corner of the courtyard. Our office is the first on the right on the ground floor. N.B. We usually come and open the door rather than buzz you into the building.
