Exchange Chambers has continued its expansion with the arrival of criminal and regulatory specialist Ian Whitehurst as a new member.

Called to the Bar in 1994, Ian joins from 7 Harrington Street Chambers in Liverpool.  He specialises in heavyweight criminal and fraud work with an emphasis on homicide, drug trafficking, tax fraud, regulatory and confiscation law and is ranked by both the Legal 500 and Chambers UK. He has extensive experience of defending all types of serious crime. He also prosecutes and defends serious organised crime. He also has a significant practice in the niche areas of cyber crime and data protection, particularly excelling in cases with a very technical angle.

Ian will be joining the criminal team at Exchange.

Commenting on his decision to join Exchange Chambers, Ian Whitehurst said:

“I am delighted to join the Northern powerhouse, Exchange Chambers.  I am looking forward to further developing my practice, which focuses on serious crime, fraud and regulatory work, at such a dynamic and progressive Set.”

Said Tom Handley, Director of Chambers at Exchange Chambers:

Ian is well-known to Chambers and his wide-ranging expertise complements our existing strengths. His practice is a natural fit and we look forward to working with him for years to come.”
