In an extraordinary move, all 27 tenants at 3 Paper Buildings, Samuel Parrish's chambers, have applied to join Plowden Buildings. A decision will be taken this Saturday.The expanded set will be one of the largest sets in Temple with between 55 and 60 barristers.Paul Hurst, senior clerk at Plowden Buildings, said: 'If a whole set applies to join it may look like a merger but it's not.'The new set will be called Plowden Buildings. Any group application will be considered.'Both Samuel Parrish and the clerks at 3 Paper Buildings denied there were any discussions under way.Other sources confirmed Hurst's statement. One said: 'It is technically correct to say this is not a merger, more of an amalgamation.'The new set would specialise in commercial, crime, personal injury, immigration and family law.Ric Martin, chief executive of Fountain Court, said: 'This doesn't surprise me. The economies of scale in a larger set bring security. I expect to see more mergers of this kind in the future.'
