Focus On… Professional Liability
This is the last time that we will be writing under the name of “Hardwicke”. From 19th July 2021 we will become Gatehouse Chambers which coincides with our move to 1 Lady Hale Gate, Gray’s Inn.
You may have seen the publicity surrounding our name change and building move, which was announced on 15th June 2021. The name change was reported across all the major legal news outlets, and has elicited a very positive response. But what really matters to us is that our clients, and many colleagues across the professions, have seen it for the uncynical, genuine attempt to move forward and distance ourselves from indirect links to (what we had discovered was) past injustice.
Our new name Gatehouse befits our new building, sited as it is over one of the historic gates into Gray’s Inn, with a new postal address of 1 Lady Hale Gate after the great Justice of the Supreme Court herself. We hope, regulations permitting, to hold some of upcoming Professional Liability events in the new building which is fully refurbished with state-of-the-art facilities and has a spacious roof terrace for open-air after-seminar mingling.
Apart from the new name and new building, the rest remains the same: our professional liability team has legal directory-recognised strength and depth.
In this Focus On…Professional Liability, we have collated our activity and articles from the last four months or so – not least our very recent article on Manchester Building Society v Grant Thornton and SAAMCo. We hope you find it useful.
