Liverpool law firm Provenio has appointed Tom Handley as a director of the business.

Mr Handley was formerly chief executive at Exchange Chambers. He help establish it as one of the largest full-service barristers’ chambers in England and Wales with close to 200 members and offices in Liverpool, Manchester and Leeds.

Set up last year by a team of senior litigation lawyers who worked together at legal giant DLA Piper in Liverpool, Provenio is a litigation practice that specialises in high value business disputes and investigations.

It recently announced the launch of a £50m fund in partnership with leading global litigation funder Therium, to finance high value litigation and arbitration claims. Managing director Mark Goodwin said: “Tom has a proven track record and is widely respected in the legal services sector.

“His insight and commercial awareness, particularly in relation to the developing group litigation and funding, will be of huge benefit as we continue to build the business.”

Mr Handley added: “Mark and the team at Provenio are recognised in the market as one of the leading litigation teams in the UK. With specialist expertise and a strong financial platform, the firm is ideally placed to realise new opportunities.”

In December 2020 Provenio also appointed David Gray as a consultant to its investment committee.  He enjoyed a long and successful career at DLA Piper before retiring from the partnership in 2017.
