Chambers’ director Sarah Cavanagh said: “Over the past few years, our Preston Chambers has enjoyed a period of sustained market growth, during difficult economic times.

“Moving to the new, bespoke and modern premises enables us to provide high specification facilities to greater support our members, staff and client base, whilst keeping overheads to
a minimum.

“We appointed PCS Law to look after Oriel Chambers’ interests. Derek Dawson, head of commercial litigation at PCS Law, exceeded all expectations by expediting the transaction well within the time scales that we had anticipated.”
