Birmingham set Three Fountain Court has collapsed, leaving nearly 50 barristers without chambers.
Rent increases and stalling fee revenue led to a financial crisis for Three Fountain Court. The set specialises in criminal and family matters, deriving much of its fees from Legal Aid.
Stephen Linehan, head of chambers at Three Fountain Court, said in a statement made this week that chambers would dissolve “28 days from last Friday”.
He added: “A significant number of Three Fountain Court will be joining St Philips.”
Jonathan Fox, St Philips Chambers chief executive, said: “It’s likely that a significant number of them will apply to join us.”
He confirmed that St Philips had made an approach to merge with Three Fountain Court in February which had been turned down.
Other sets in the running to take on members include St Ives, No 5 Chambers and Citadel Chambers.
