In February 2018 the Chancellor was present at the opening of the Business and Property Court in Liverpool at which he said “There are some very important advantages of bringing together the Commercial Court, the Technology and Construction Court and the courts of the Chancery Division…No case will be too big to be tried in Liverpool….Liverpool has a proud legal history. At one time, its courts resolved some of the biggest and most significant maritime, commodities and trade disputes. We can once again provide state of the art business dispute resolution to Liverpool’s thriving commercial centre and its supporting legal community.”
