North West set Kings Chambers has added David Casement QC to its membership.
Casement joins chambers from its rival regional set Exchange Chambers along with junior James Boyd.
The silk, who was called to the bar in 1992, was instrumental in establishing Exchange Chambers’ commercial practice in 1993. In 2008 he became one of the youngest barristers ever to be made up outside of London, taking silk at the age of 38.
Kings Chambers head Nicholas Braslavsky QC said: “David’s reputation as a commercial practitioner is well known both regionally and nationally and his addition to the team reaffirms our position as the leading commercial set outside London.”
Employment barrister Boyd was called to the bar in 1994 and acts for both employees and employers.
