Have you seen Silk* on Netflix? If so, is the portrayal close to the real thing?

* "a British television drama series produced by the BBC which was broadcast over three series on BBC One between 22 February 2011 and 31 March 2014. Created by Peter Moffat, the series follows the daily goings on of Shoe Lane Chambers and its members in their personal and professional lives."

A gathering of seven senior assistants originated from five "enchantment circle" business chambers whose attorneys summon the most elevated expenses. Top of the table is David Grief, senior assistant at Essex Court chambers, who the Lawyer Magazine appraisals is on £350,000 a year. He began as a lesser assistant when he was only 17 years of age. The second most astounding positioned senior representative is Robert Ralphs, assessed to win £320,000.
