This year, The Lawyer’s annual ranking of the largest UK law firms by turnover is available as an interactive, digital benchmarking tool. For the first time this will allow you to manipulate each data set against the metrics of your choice.
Wilberforce Chambers, the leading commercial chancery set, has netted three top property barristers from rival 4 Breams Buildings.
Michael Barnes QC, John Furber QC and Jonathan Karas, who join the set later this month, are all landlord and tenant law specialists.
The three bring a complementary specialism to Wilberforce Chambers, which is highly recommended in property litigation.
The set now has 32 tenants, including 12 silks. Twenty five members already handle property matters on a regular basis and the new arrivals will help challenge 4 Breams Buildings' dominance.
But Stephen Graham, senior clerk at 4 Breams Buildings, remains upbeat: "Chambers remains committed to our core areas of practice in public law, planning and property and is continuing its programme of expansion in each area."
Edward Nugee QC, head of Wilberforce Chambers, says: "These members bring with them established practices that will allow us to offer both strength and depth across the whole range of property law."
