St Philip's Chambers has responded to criticism in the local market by enhancing its commercial team with lateral hires from Birmingham rivals.
The set is acquiring two commercial barristers, Jeremy Cousins QC and senior junior Simon Clegg, from 4 Fountain Court.
Cousins is one of five Birmingham barristers made QC in this year's silks list.
The two represented the core of the 30-tenant set's commercial practice.
Local solicitors have criticised the set for failing to offer enough strength in depth in its commercial group. St Philip's, the largest chambers in the country, has a total of 94 tenants, including 10 silks.
The set is losing criminal practitioner Peter McCartney to 4 Fountain Court but gains Michael Knowles from Equity Chambers and Tracy Lloyd-Nesling from the Crown Prosecution Service.
