The world's business leaders come to the UK to settle their disputes

Wed, 07 December 2011

The Ministry of Justice reports the Royal opening of the new Rolls Building in London designed to accommodate the world's most modern and hi-tech courts complex built specifically to resolve financial, business and property disputes.

Her Majesty The Queen unveiled a plaque at a ceremony, attended by Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice, Kenneth Clarke, the Lord Chief Justice, the Rt Hon The Lord Judge, and the Lord Mayor of London, Alderman David Wootton.

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.

The UK has long been considered as a centre for legal excellence and the launch of the new, world class court facilities will help make it the destination of choice for global businesses in the 21st century, leading to sustainable, long term growth.

More international and commercial arbitrations take place in London under English law than in any other city in the world. Ninety per cent of commercial cases handled by London law firms now involve an international party.
