Revenue per barrister at 2-3 Gray's Inn Square has rocketed to £216,000, an increase of 10 per cent from last year.
The set's turnover rose by 4 per cent to £10.6m, up from £10.2m in 2005. But the chambers lost three members during the year, meaning that average income per barrister went up from 2005's £196,000.
During the course of 2005-06, 2-3 Gray's Inn Square hired a new chambers director, Lynne Orsborn, to replace Lindsay Scott, who became Matrix Chambers' chief executive.
Orsborn said the figures represented a "good, solid year" for the set. 2-3 Gray's Inn Square has grown steadily during the past few years, first entering The Lawyer's Bar Top 30 in 2004, when it brought in £9.7m. The set has a solid reputation in common and commercial law.
Last year, co-head of chambers Anthony Scrivener QC appeared in the House of Lords to fight for air passengers who were claiming compensation from airlines for injuries caused by deep vein thrombosis.
