Following on from a stellar year, which saw Tanfield Chambers and its members move up the rankings in both the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners directories, the set is embarking on a management review and restructure so as to better support its clients.

Ranked in the most recent (2016) Chambers & Partners guide, the set has worked hard over recent years to establish its position as one of the leading and most ambitious sets of its type.

The set has announced, this week, that after 16 years, Kevin Moore is to step down as Practice Director at Tanfield.

During his time in chambers, Tanfield has grown significantly in strength and reputation, becoming one of the ranked sets in property litigation.

In 2014, Tanfield was nominated for its client service in the Chambers & Partners awards, reflecting the strong client focus, which Kevin has helped to foster.

Kevin will be available to chambers in the coming weeks to assist with a handover of his duties, and with the transition to a new management structure, which builds on success and further develops the set’s services to clients.

We wish Kevin every success in the future.Following Kevin’s immediate departure Eamonn Kelly has accepted the role of Interim Chambers Director. All non-clerking enquiries should be directed to him. He will be supported by Zoe Bluck, for all clerking matters. Joanne Meah (currently on maternity leave) will rejoin the set in 2016 to work alongside Zoe.

Head of Chambers, Philip Rainey QC, said: "Tanfield has always stood apart through its combination of the very highest standards in client care, innovative approach and legal expertise. Our decision to embark on a management review over 2015/16 demonstrates our commitment to ensuring that this approach evolves as the set grows and client needs develop. I am, along with our newly appointed Joint Deputy Heads of Chambers, Catriona MacLaren and Nicholas Isaac, greatly looking forward to this new chapter for the set."
