3 Paper Buildings has installed Ian Lawrie QC as head of chambers as the set breaks into a new era of development.
Lawrie succeeds Richard Tyson, who has spent eight years at the helm. He will take over on Monday (1 October).
The set, which saw turnover rise by 9.7 per cent during the 2011-12 financial year, from £16.93m to £18.57m, is in the midst of devising a new strategy to underpin its competitiveness at the bar.
Lawrie said a new strategy would be revealed in the coming weeks but one of his main priorities would be to streamline the set’s administrative facilities.
“We need to be more efficient and we need to be more businesslike,” he said. The challenge for me is to enhance the positive features of the chambers.”
He continued: “The model is showing its age; it doesn’t matter whether we like it or not – we have the responsibility to ensure the future.”
Lawrie, a criminal specialist, was called to the bar in 1985 and took silk last year.
