LED BY trainee solicitor Deepak Malhotra, Denton Hall's chess team has won the hotly-contested annual Central London Legal Chess Cup, snatching victory from Simmons & Simmons in the final. The game is taken very seriously by the 18 or so City firms that compete. Slaughter and May's team is led by a Grand Master, William Watson, who is ranked among the top 40 in the world. "We knocked them out in the first round," gloated Deepak. But how do the chess champs find time for legal work? "With great difficulty," said Deepak. "Chess has to take precedence, I'm afraid," he joked. The team from left to right are: Charles Rickett, John O'Hara, Malhotra, Sohail Barkatali and Malcolm Groom.
