No5 Chambers, which is home to over 235 barristers including 25 QCs, is opening new offices in the East Midlands to meet demand from clients.
Tony McDaid, Practice Director at No5 Chambers, says: “No5 Chambers is expanding and enhancing its geographical presence and offering. Our business model regularly attracts new tenants. Some of those who work from our Birmingham offices were previously members of East Midlands’ sets and regularly instructed by solicitors in that region. Demand from clients – direct and instructing solicitors - in that area continues to flourish and so we took the strategic decision to open Chambers there.”
No5 Chambers’ offices at 5 Museum Square, Leicester, will initially be home to barristers from three practices – Family, Crime and Immigration – with more basing themselves there as caseload dictates.
“The management, clerking teams and barristers are all committed to working in partnership with clients,” continues Tony. “Our move to Leicester is a reflection of this commitment, allowing solicitors and other clients from the region to enjoy and benefit from easier access to the highest standards of advocacy and service.
“I anticipate that the new offices will not only see us consolidate the level of instructions we receive from the East Midlands but also increase business, turnover and the reputations of our tenants and No5 itself.”
