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.
