2 Harcourt Buildings snares four barrister team

Public law set 2 Harcourt Buildings has swooped on 3 Raymond Buildings for a four barrister team, strengthening its licensing and regulatory expertise.

Kevin de Haan QC, together with senior juniors Gerald Gouriet, Mark Harris and James Rankin, join 2 Harcourt Buildings along with public law and licensing specialist Harry Spurr from Bristol set St John’s Chambers.

Chambers head Robin Purchas QC said the moves provide an opportunity for 2 Harcourt Buildings to consolidate its claim to be the leading chambers for licensing, environmental, regulatory and public law work.

The news comes as 2 Harcourt Buildings prepares to move into new premises at Francis Taylor Building, providing 850 sq m of space.
