Avtar Khangure QC is the new head of St Philips Chambers. Avtar, a commercial and insolvency specialist, took over from Kevin Hegarty QC at the end of his tenure.
Avtar said: “I am delighted to have been elected to the post of Head of Chambers and wish to publicly thank Kevin Hegarty QC for his hard work over the past 3 years. He and the board never stood still and did a tremendous amount of work to secure the future of St Philips and its members; most notably the opening of our 2 new premises in London and Leeds giving members more access to work over a wider geographical spread. I am looking forward to overseeing the new look St Philips in what are undoubtedly exciting but challenging times for chambers and the Bar generally”.
