Commercial chancery set XXIV Old Buildings has snared Michael Black QC of Two Temple Gardens – the silk who drafted the court procedure ;rules ;for the Dubai International Financial Centre.
Black, who took silk in 1995, headed Temple’s international arbitration and projects group.
XXIV practice director Nicholas Luckman said that Black’s practice, which includes construction and fraud, complemented the set’s core business areas.
“As a chambers we’re interested in practitioners who add strength to our domestic and international expertise and help create business opportunities in the UK, international markets and foreign jurisdictions,” said Luckman.
Black said XXIV will give him opportunities to develop his practice. “This is a chambers that doesn’t rest on its laurels, but uses its expertise intelligently to develop new markets,” he added.
