No clues solved, in brief (7)


I believe the answer is:


'brief' is the definition.

'no clues solved' is the wordplay.
'solved' indicates an anagram (the anagram must be solved).
'noclues' is an anagram of 'COUNSEL'.

'in' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for counsel that I've seen before include "So uncle may give advice" , "kept by the secretive" , "Recommend - barrister" , "Legal advice" , "kept by the uncommunicative" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
