Stalking the big beasts
Birmingham's commercial work is not yet confined exclusively to the city's two supersets. For while St Philip's and 5 Fountain Court pursue two distinct routes to regional dominance, smaller rivals are fighting their own corner. Michael Gerrard reports
A casual observer of the Birmingham commercial bar will probably think that all such work is handled by supersets St Philip’s and 5 Fountain Court. While it is true that these full-service legal powerhouses boast three-figure memberships, including the majority of the best commercial and chancery practitioners, other Birmingham sets can still stake a claim to such work.
