We are currently inviting applications from barristers across all locations, practice areas and levels of seniority

In recent years, a number of high quality practitioners – both Silks and Juniors – have joined Exchange Chambers from other leading sets.

Exchange Chambers is committed to an ongoing expansion programme across the Northern and North Eastern circuits. With over 200 members, we are one of the largest full service Chambers in the country. Recent Presiding Judges for the Northern and North Eastern circuits have been members of Exchange Chambers.

We hold strong beliefs about the way in which we work and run our business and are committed to equality and diversity. It is crucial to our standing as a leading set of Chambers that we excel in this.

We pride ourselves on having a good working environment – we have excellent staff retention, and many members with long service. It is our policy to offer and support flexible working for any member of Chambers.

We operate in an enabling atmosphere, placing a high priority on career development. We also support barristers who choose to undertake judicial appointments.

We provide our members with outstanding practice development support tailored to individual aspirations – whether it is developing better quality work, increasing earnings, applying for judicial appointments or taking Silk.

Record financial performance (£41.1 million for the 2022/2023 financial year) is fuelling our growth. Members’ contributions are highly competitive (12.1% on average) while flexible contributions are also available and can be tailored to the individual (single office, multi-occupancy and hot-desking are all available).

Comments in Chambers and Partners and The Legal 500 include “Northern Powerhouse”, “Regional Heavyweight”, “Highly Acclaimed”, “Renowned”, “Highly Commercial” and “Top-Notch”.

A move to Exchange Chambers could transform your practice.

To apply, or for further information, please contact Jonathan I’Anson (Chief Executive) in the strictest confidence.
