Beck Greener News

Ian Bartlett of Beck Greener was amongst an eight-member team fielded by the English and Welsh bar to compete in the newly inaugurated “Common Law Cup”.  The competition was established to bring together tennis playing members of the legal professions in common law countries and to honour those members who have combined an extraordinary legal career with outstanding achievements in, and contributions to, the sport of tennis.  The first Common Law Cup competition among England/Wales, Ireland and the United States was played at the Chevy Chase Club in Washington DC between 3rd and 5th September.

We are pleased to report that the English/Welsh bar were victorious, with Ian, and his partner John Taylor QC, winning both of their matches.  The bi-annual competition will move to Ireland in 2018.

Game, set and match!
