Quadrant director retires

Quadrant Chambers director Gordon Armstrong is set to retire in January.

Armstrong, who has served as senior clerk and chambers director at the set since 1984, took the decision to take early retirement after suffering from ill-health over the last few months.

During Armstrong’s time in office the set has expanded from niche admiralty law set 2 Essex Court, which became 4 Essex Court and then Quadrant, a set of 44 barristers practising a broad range of commercial law.
