ONE hundred and fifty people gathered at the Waldorf Hotel in London last week to celebrate Brick Court Chambers' 75th anniversary
The chambers, which specialises in commercial law including shipping, insurance and banking, was founded by former Labour attorney-general and pre-eminent commercial lawyer William Jowitt.
