Zenith Chambers creates new management team

Leeds-based Zenith Chambers has reformed its management team in a bid to break down the silos that form in barristers chambers.

The new team eliminates the long-standing silos that have previously existed in chambers structures, according to Zenith, and provides an environment for accelerated decision making and operational efficiency.

The new team includes senior family clerk Rebecca Hartley, senior criminal clerk Stephanie Hunt, senior civil clerk Paul McNab, head of business development Debra Hinde and barristers Bronia Hartley, Tom Tyson and Elliot Kay.

John Boumphrey has joined the Zenith management team as deputy head of chambers alongside David Bradshaw, head of chambers. The new structure brings together, in a single leadership team, a group of individuals experienced and skilled in strategic development, financial and HR management, and regulatory compliance.

Bradshaw commented: “The new structure enables Zenith to continue driving performance improvements in a more effective and efficient way, placing responsibility for the strategic direction and operation of chambers directly into the right hands. This is a huge change for Zenith and I’m delighted to work with such a talented and driven team”
