Exchange Chambers

About The Set

Exchange Chambers is one of a handful of full-service super-sets. It has over 150 barristers (among them 16 QCs) split between Liverpool, Manchester and Leeds practising in everything from commercial law to serious injury, public law and crime.

A high proportion of the major cases taking place within this North West and Yorkshire catchment area go through Exchange -- with its roster of silks among the most respected outside London. One of the plusses of starting your career here is that you get to sample a mix of work before specialising as a junior tenant. The set is also said to offer a much better work-life balance than other leading chambers.
