The brand new Rolls Building in London means the UK has even more to offer.

Located off Fetter Lane in the City of London, the Rolls Building brings under one roof the expertise of the Chancery Division of the High Court, the Admiralty and Commercial Court and the Technology and Construction Court.

The state of the art court complex covers more than 16,000 square metres, houses 31 courtrooms, 11 hearing rooms and 55 consultation rooms. It is equipped with the latest IT facilities and three ‘super courts’ able to handle the most complex and multi-party trials.

Justice Secretary Kenneth Clarke said:

‘The world’s business leaders come to the UK to settle their disputes so that they can move forward, trade can grow, and people can prosper.

‘The brand new Rolls Building in London means the UK has even more to offer: The world’s most modern and hi-tech courts complex built specifically to resolve financial, business and property disputes.’

Michael Todd QC, Chairman-Elect of the Bar Council, said:

‘The Rolls Building is a testament to the commitment and support of this Government and the legal services sector to the continuing role of the UK as the global resolution dispute centre of choice.’
