Exchange Chambers shortlisted for Chambers Bar Award 2019

September 9, 2019

Exchange Chambers has been shortlisted for Regional Set of the Year at the Chambers Bar Awards: 2019.

The awards are based on research for the 2019 edition of Chambers Bar and reflect a set’s pre-eminence in key practice areas. They also reflect notable achievements over the past 12 months including outstanding work, impressive strategic growth and excellence in client service.

With 170 plus barristers across the North, Exchange Chambers is firmly established as one of the largest and most well-resourced Chambers in England and Wales.

Exchange Chambers’ AGM earlier this year saw the Set announce record turnover of £33.1 million for the 2018 / 2019 financial year – a rise of 7.5% on last year’s £30.8 million. Exchange also announced plans to “actively explore opportunities in London”.

Strong financial performance is also enabling Exchange to invest in its future, with the launch of a pupillage academy. Exchange Chambers will take on 6 pupils in September 2020 covering crime, commercial and common law.

Said Tom Handley, CEO at Exchange Chambers:

“It has been a very positive twelve months with all our departments performing strongly. The multi-disciplinary nature of Chambers is driving high quality instructions across the board.

“Chambers’ strong financial performance positions us well for future growth while the launch of a pupillage academy – in effect, a national centre of excellence for aspiring barristers – marks our commitment to the next generation of talent.”

The Chambers Bar Awards: 2019 take place on Thursday, 31st of October at The London Hilton on Park Lane.
