Exchange Chambers signs new ten-year lease in Manchester

July 13, 2020

Exchange Chambers has agreed a new ten-year lease on its top floor offices at 201 Deansgate – a prominent commercial property in the heart of Manchester.

Exchange moved to 201 Deansgate in 2014, relocating from its previous Manchester base at Ralli Courts. The Set’s office space includes a boardroom and eight additional conference rooms equipped with the latest technology platforms required for remote hearings.

As one of the largest Chambers in England and Wales, Exchange is described as a “Northern Powerhouse” by the independent legal directories.

“In signing a new ten-year lease, we are confirming our long-term commitment to Manchester and our confidence in the future of the regional Bar,” said Chief Executive Jonathan I’Anson.

“Moving forward, remote working will become increasingly commonplace at the Bar. Our decision to retain the same amount of space in Manchester factors this in and allows for future growth.”

Exchange Chambers has adapted all its offices in line with Government led Covid-19 guidelines to ensure social distancing and hygiene precautions are fully implemented across all work spaces.

Added Jonathan I’Anson: “Barristers, staff and clients can feel totally safe working or meeting in Chambers whenever they feel comfortable to do so.”
