Liverpool-based criminal chambers 25 Castle Street has been dissolved, leading to its 30 tenants being picked up by rival sets 7 Harrington Street and Chavasse Court Chambers.
Castle Street’s former head of chambers Stephen Riordan QC and Nicholas Johnson QC joined 90-barrister set 7 Harrington Street along with 15 other tenants.
One Liverpool barrister said 25 Castle Street’s members felt that, with the squeeze on legal aid, the set would not survive alone, adding: ;“The ;more barristers there are in a set, the more you can spread the risk and costs like chambers contributions.”
The set’s closure follows that of Manchester’s 8 King Street Chambers in July.
