New Bradford office and heads of chambers for Broadway House

Broadway House Chambers has recently moved from premises at 9 Bank Street to a newly refurbished office at Devere House on Vicar Lane in the Little Germany area of Bradford.

The new office at Devere House have been transformed to meet a new way of working in bright open-plan rooms for the barristers and clerks.

The office is fully equipped with state-of-the-art remote conferencing facilities and meeting rooms, helping clients access legal services throughout the UK. High-tech video and audio facilities can host conferences and hearings on platforms such as Zoom, CVP, Microsoft Teams and Skype.

Devere House has disabled access up to Broadway House Chambers’s office on the second floor.

The new office is a two-minute walk from the city’s respective Combined Court Centre and a five-minute walk to the Magistrates’ Court.

Broadway House Chambers also has an office in the newly refurbished 1 City Square, Leeds.

In other recent news, the set has appointed Tahir Khan QC and Stephen Wood QC as joint heads of chambers. Rodney Ferm, who stepped down from the role in June, said: “I have enjoyed my term as head of chambers and I am delighted that chambers has taken the step of appointing joint heads as a team to lead us in the coming years”.

Khan said, “Taking on the joint leadership of chambers is both a privilege and an honour for me. I can think of nobody better to share that responsibility with than Stephen, my friend for nearly three decades. We owe a debt of gratitude to Rodney Ferm for his stewardship of chambers and for maintaining the stability that is the hallmark of chambers. We hope to build on that stability in the years to come.”

Wood said: “It is an honour to be elected to lead the chambers where I have spent my entire professional career but more so given that I will share that responsibility with a very dear friend and colleague in Tahir. We must pay tribute to Rodney Ferm who has led us all with skill, patience and good humour.”
