Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS -

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.”
