You practice from a specialist set of fewer than 40 members. What do you think are the advantages?
For me, it is important to belong to a small set where all of us specialise. Atkin Chambers has expanded organically largely by recruiting pupils. I would expect rapid or large expansion would dilute our expertise, and be perceived as such.
