Sparrow takes flight

Charles Sparrow QC's chambers at Thirteen Old Square is to move to new refurbished premises at 6 New Square in late 1999.

The move follows the set's recent poaching of six juniors from other sets making the 30-strong set the largest chancery chambers in Lincoln's Inn.

"Taking the new premises will enable us to continue our policy of strategic expansion so as to provide in-depth expertise at all levels across the commercial/ chancery spectrum," said chambers management committee chairman Michael Briggs QC.
