Silk leaves Birmingham for Serle Court

St Philips Chambers has lost one of its most high profile silks to the London Bar.

James Corbett QC, a chancery commercial specialist, is joining Serle Court, where he has been an associate tenant for several years.

He is now moving his practice to London although he will retain an associate tenancy at the Birmingham set.

Corbett is chairman of the Midlands Chancery & Commercial Bar Association.
