Fountain Court is pleased to announce that Laurie Brock has joined Chambers, as of Monday 15 March.

Called to the Bar in 2013, Laurie joined Maitland Chambers following pupillage. He has developed a broad commercial chancery practice with an emphasis on banking and financial services and is referred to by Chambers & Partners as “incredibly thorough, incredibly responsive and an absolute pleasure to deal with, operating at an experience level many years ahead of his call”. He has already been instructed on some of the largest pieces of commercial litigation in the London market, including PAG and Wall v RBS.

Head of chambers Bankim Thanki QC said: “Many of our members have worked with Laurie over the years and have been universally impressed by his sheer excellence. We look forward to welcoming him to Fountain Court. Laurie will further strengthen our established banking, financial services and broader commercial and corporate litigation work.”

Senior clerk Alex Taylor said: “We are delighted to welcome Laurie to Fountain Court. With his experience in the commercial chancery arena, he complements our top tier banking and financial services practices in particular and I am absolutely confident that he will be a brilliant addition to the team.”

Laurie’s arrival demonstrates Fountain Court’s continued growth in its core practice areas, underlined by the appointment to silk of eight members in the last three years and the successful graduation from pupillage of eight new tenants in the same period.
