Radcliffe snaps up SJ Berwin associate

SJ Berwin associate Harris Bor has left the firm to join ­Radcliffe Chambers in a move that is designed to boost the set’s ­commercial expertise.

Bor is the fifth junior to join the ­Lincoln’s Inn set in the past year. The move, he said, was prompted by a desire to have greater control over his practice. “You cannot underestimate the attraction of independence at the bar,” Bor said. “There’s more opportunity to specialise than be a ­generalist.” A chambers spokesman added: “We’ve always been known for our commercial litigation expertise, and although we remain very much a Chancery set, we’re increasingly dealing with the very high-value commercial cases.”
