  • with regards to the comment @ 2.24.
    I'm sure you are right, but the story suggests that it is only a part of this 4 Pump Court who are undertaking this venture. the ones doing it must surely then be doing so using some other form of structure apart from a chambers one?
    Either way, it looks like they are doing what you suggest they should, which is going out into the international market place and getting work!

  • Re overfed: as I have tried to point out, it is a big story because it should result in some good lunches for me. And As I am part of society, it must then be doing some good.

  • I agree with the comment above: they do have some stars - Sean Brannigan is the most obvious example - so this should work BUT it may well not work for all unless some of the lower profile silks are able to really step up their profile. Specialism is probably the key here: if you are a Hong Kong solicitor you may well jump at the chance of using a star specialist silk from the UK who is demonstrating a real committment to the region but will have no real incentive to use a general commerical silk when there is plenty of those at the local bar?

  • I would be very interested to know more about this, as it might provide a very useful resource for those who ave work which emanates from Hong Kong, but not the experience to deal with it without the bar.

  • They're a very business minded set, so I'm sure it was well thought through. I've worked for some years with barristers from there. I wish them every success in this venture
