199 Strand boosted by three new tenants

Long-established London chambers 199 Strand has been bolstered with three new tenants.

Employment specialist and former solicitor Anthony Korn is joining with Leslie Blohm and Toby Vanhegan.

Korn moves from Barnards Inn, which folded in June last year. He was previously the head of DLA's employment advocacy department.

Although Blohm is also joining, his role will be modified to accommodate the fact that he will continue to work at Bristol-based St John's Chambers.

Blohm specialises in commercial, landlord and tenant, property and equity & trusts.

Vanhegan leaves 2 Middle Temple Lane to work in the property, landlord and tenant and general commercial areas at 199 Strand.

Chambers spokesman Martin Griffiths says: “We are always looking to grow our core areas of practice, namely landlord and tenant, professional indemnity, personal injury, and clinical injury and our specialist employment group.”

“Korn will be the second most senior in the group and will benefit the group which is led by Martin Kurrein.”

Kurrein specialises in sex and discrimination cases.
