“Go-to” Exchange Chambers is “home to top-flight barristers” says Chambers and Partners 2019

November 1, 2018

Exchange Chambers has retained its Band 1 ranking as a Northern Powerhouse in this year’s Chambers and Partners legal directory.

Described as “home to top-flight barristers” and “one of the go-to sets” Exchange Chambers is also praised for its “strong presence across the North of England”.

A record number of individual barristers and departments are also singled out for praise with Exchange Chambers described as “one of the leading commercial sets on the Northern Circuit”, “a strong criminal set with a number of standout advocates”, and “well regarded for its handling of an impressive breadth of catastrophic injury cases on the Northern Circuit”.  Solicitors also draw attention to the set’s “very good strength in depth,” praising Exchange Chambers as “an excellent set of chambers offering an exceptional service.”

Across the two main legal directories (Chambers and Partners and The Legal 500), Exchange Chambers has now secured over 150 separate rankings this year.

Commenting on the rankings, Tom Handley, Chief Executive at Exchange Chambers said:

“To secure so many top tier rankings is a great credit to Chambers.

“With outstanding barristers across all practice areas, we are one of the largest and most well-resourced Chambers in England and Wales. This allows us to provide strength in depth and an unparalleled level of service and cover.”
