Hardwicke Building, London's largest set, is moving. In August the set will transfer from its current home in New Square to nearby Hale Court. The building is currently being refurbished by Lincoln's Inn in a £2.7 million upgrade. The chambers, which has 65 tenants and 21 back-up staff, will enjoy premises three times the size of its New Square accommodation, allowing room for expansion. Chief executive Tony Wells said: "It is a very exciting development for the chambers. The new building will be fully networked and provided with the latest systems technology, giving us unparalleled ease of communication both within chambers and with clients and others outside." He added that the set planned a "first class" library, plus seminar, lecture and conference facilities.
