Renaissance Chambers has announced that it is beginning the process of dissolution, blaming the impact of legal aid cuts.

The Gazette yesterday reported that Members at Renaissance Chambers in London's Gray's Inn voted in January to dissolve the set. The formal date of dissolution will be the end of its financial year on 31 March. 

Practice manager Elaine Cheeseman told the Gazette that the vote was precipitated by the departure last year of 25 members, including the entire immigration team, which decamped to Mansfield Chambers - the set formed following the dissolution of Tooks.

The article goes on to say that Cheeseman was hopeful about the possibility of a re-styled ‘phoenix' chambers - a ‘Renaissance Two' - rising from the ashes, as happened with Mansfield Chambers.

The full article is available on the Gazette website.
