The Company is managed by a Court comprising a Master, Wardens and Court Assistants.
The Master and Thames, Fleet and Walbrook Wardens are elected annually, usually for a period of one year. On appointment, Wardens appoint Bailiffs from Liverymen not on the Court to assist them during their whole period of office. Court Assistants generally serve at least three years.
The Company is supported by officers, principally the Clerk and the Beadle, and by a number of honorary appointments relevant to the business, for example, the Hon Chaplain and the Bargemaster.
