Further expansion for Exchange Chambers in Leeds

January 7, 2015

Exchange Chambers has continued its expansion in Leeds with the arrival of civil practitioner, Susanna Kitzing.

Susanna, who was called to the Bar in 2005, joins Exchange Chambers from New Park Court Chambers in Leeds.

In 2012, Susanna was appointed to the Attorney General’s Regional Panel list for civil work.  As well as being instructed in general civil work including personal injury, inquests following deaths in custody and claims brought by prisoners under the Human Rights Act, the appointment has enabled Susanna to develop her judicial review practice and she is regularly instructed by the Treasury Solicitor to defend claims relating to prisoners’ rights, immigration and school admission arrangements.

Susanna is  instructed by local authorities and other public bodies in regulatory and housing work. She is also on the list of practitioners approved by the General Medical Council to present cases at hearings before the Fitness to Practise Panel of the Medical Practitioners’ Tribunal Service.

Commenting on her decision to join Exchange Chambers, Susanna Kitzing said:

“Exchange Chambers has an established and expanding civil department and I am looking forward to further developing my practice at such a forward-thinking, progressive Set.

Exchange Chambers now has 25 members in Leeds and is enjoying a period of sustained growth.

Said Tom Handley, Director of Chambers:

“We are continuing to attract  barristers across all practice areas and Susie has a first rate reputation and an impressive practice.”
