We are delighted to announce the merger of Southernhay Chambers and Rougemont Chambers to provide our collective clients with an increased breadth of expertise and create the largest chambers to the south west of Bristol.
Rougemont and Southernhay formally came together on 18 July 2013 following nine months of strategic negotiations to create a chambers boasting 43 members and 15 associate members, as well as a six-strong experienced clerking team.
The merger has enabled us to combine our specialist knowledge in civil, family and employment law creating larger teams and providing clients with a wider and deeper range of services.
Our expanded clerking team also gives us greater flexibility and scope attractive to both exisitng and new clients looking to work with a team of highly skilled experts in the south west.
We also expect Magdalen Chambers to attract interest from barristers wishing to develop a specialised civil or family practice both in the South West and farther afield, and in fact we have already received several such approaches.
If you have any questions about the merger, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
