Retiring Law Lord, Lord Hoffmann, is joining Brick Court Chambers as a door tenant.
Hoffmann, who is due to retire from the House of Lords later this month, will join the set as an arbitrator and will also handle mediation work.
Brick Court senior clerk Ian Moyler commented: “We’re very happy. He’s undoubtedly one of the most revered judges of recent times.”
Moyler said there had been an increased demand for arbitrators since October, with many clients preferring arbitration to litigation in the current climate.
Hoffman is known as one of the most impressive Law Lords of his generation.
