Outer Temple might be feeling a little draughty this week after the defection of a four-strong barrister team to Serjeants’ Inn.
The barristers left 6 Pump Court back in 2004 before the set dissolved and now will be taking on regulatory, disciplinary, medical and clinical negligence work at their new home.
They join former set-mate, clinical negligence barrister Caroline Hallissey, who also left Outer Temple last year. Is clinical negligence going out of fashion at Outer Temple?
Talking of fashion, on Friday Mishcon de Reya client Jack Wills won a High Court battle with the House of Fraser. Mr Justice Arnold ruled that the department store had infringed the fashion label’s company logo of a pheasant in a top hat and cane.
That’s what you call a dedicated follower of fashion.
