Speaking on behalf of the new Joint Heads, Will Tyler said:
‘Vasanti, Dean and I are hugely excited to assume the leadership of this market-leading, multi-specialist set of Chambers. In recent years, under the assured stewardship of William Harbage QC and Richard Wilson QC, The 36 Group has hugely increased its market presence and reputation for the provision of the highest quality legal services, has surged up the directory rankings and has acquired beautiful, spacious and prestigious new premises in the heart of Gray’s Inn.
We look forward to building on these successes. We will continue the drive to make The 36 Group the most innovative set of barristers’ chambers in the country. We plan to grow our already significant international presence, serving commercial and high value private clients through all of our specialist groups. Most importantly, we will always maintain the quality of service we provide to all of our clients, domestic or international, and whatever the particular needs of the client or case.’
