  • While Outer Temple has a good domestic reputation for pensions and personal injury work, they are complete non-entities when it comes to big ticket international commercial work. Do they have the quality in depth that you get with eg Brick Court, Essex Court Chambers, Fountain Court, 3VB, One Essex Court (to name but a few)? Not in a million years

  • there seems to be a lot of hype around chambers and solicitor firms listing on the stock exchange. However, are regulators worried about conflict of interest in the profession? (i.e. the tension between shareholder interest against the interest of independent legal advice?)

  • Not a day goes by without another announcement from Outer Temple chambers of some other unlikely scheme ("office" in New York, "international" company). However, as the first commentator pointed out, whilst Outer Temple has its merits, it is a complete zero in any serious international work. It is surprising that the Lawyer continues to print this obvious PR puffery.

  • The point is not whether Outer Temple can compete with the likes of the top commercial sets (it just doesn't have that history or pedigree (yet)), rather it is that Outer Temple is planning ahead and taking advantage of the changing legal market, and is being successful at it. For another perspective see http://mar-aon.blogspot.com/2010/02/way-forward.html . Outer Temple: winner, Chambers of the Year at the Lawyer Awards 2008. Is the the judging panel susceptible to the "puffery", or did they take account of the set's innovative approach to getting in new work, with provable international experience under its belt?
