Our client is a successful leading Civil/Commercial Chambers recognised in the legal directories as a leading set in its core practice areas and whose members are widely acknowledged as “leaders in the field”.

Suitable individuals will possess a successful track-record of leadership and development of a barristers’ Chambers, professional services business or similar. They will possess demonstrable strategic and business development skills, allied to excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to influence at all levels.
