Exchange further strengthens award-winning family law team

June 28, 2022

Exchange Chambers has further strengthened its award-winning family law team with the arrival of specialist children law practitioner Matt Rogan as a new member.

A Solicitor since 2004, Matt has transferred to the Bar to join Exchange.

Matt’s experience covers almost any area of work in public and private children law cases. He has represented children, parents, family members and intervenors with much experience also of separately representing children in complex care proceedings or in the context of inherent jurisdiction High Court proceedings.

Commenting on his decision to join Exchange Chambers, Matt said:

“I was attracted to Exchange for a number of reasons.

“The Set has a track-record for welcoming former Solicitors to the Bar while I also know the clerks and have for many years been instructing them as a Solicitor. Exchange have been very welcoming and supportive and having been thinking about the move for a few years, my only regret is that I should have done it earlier!”

Said Jonathan I’Anson, Chief Executive at Exchange Chambers:

“Matt is the latest in a long line of Solicitors who have transferred to the Bar and joined Exchange.

“A first-rate advocate, his extensive experience stands him in good stead for a long and successful career at the Bar.

“Family law is a growth area for Chambers and we are delighted Matt has joined the team.”

In November 2021, Exchange Chambers was named as Family Law Chambers of the Year (Regional) at the Family Law Awards.  The award recognition followed on from Exchange strengthening its family law team in November 2020 with the arrival of a 14-strong team of barristers from Chavasse Court Chambers.
