Kings the first chambers to be Powerhouse partner
BARRISTERS’ SET Kings Chambers has been announced as the first chambers to become a Northern Powerhouse Partner.
As a partner, Leeds-based Kings Chambers will work with the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government to promote the North of England.
Partners work specifically to support development in four key areas: connectivity and transport; skills, science and innovation; quality of life and culture; and devolution.
Nigel Poole QC, head of Kings Chambers, said: “It is a great honour to be named as the very first chambers in the country to become a partner to the Northern Powerhouse.
“With nationally respected barristers in all aspects of civil law, including planning, construction, business, property and health and safety litigation, we are ideally positioned to be a significant partner.
“A key focus for us will be to provide opportunities for students through our annual work experience programme and to work to attract talented graduates from right across the country to work here in Leeds’s growing legal sector.”
