My chambers have recently opened an annexe at 2 Snow Hill which hosts some of the leading law firms in Birmingham. One of them held a reception earlier today which I attended with several of my London colleagues, our Chief Executive and one of our clerks. One of the topics we discussed was Birmingham Tech Week as well as the tech sector in the West Midlands in general, its needs and how we could assist its businesses and investors. I see a lot of opportunities there.
