Brick Court lures Lord Hoffmann as door tenant

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.
