Leeds criminal specialist set St Paul's Chambers is merging with neighbouring civil set Mercury Chambers on 1 January
The merger will form a multidisciplinary set of 36 members led by St Paul's current head Nigel Sangster QC. The move also means that St Paul's already-established regulatory breach team will be strengthened.
