Temple Garden Chambers is a leading common law set based in London and The Hague.
With excellence from top to bottom Chambers provides a first class service in a number of different fields.
Edward Hutchin (instructed by Andrew Thomson of DAC Beachcroft) represented the successful insurer in this case in which the dishonest Claimant was found guilty on two counts of Contempt of Court.
Video footage had shown the Claimant, a boxer, in a competitive bout despite claiming that he could not box because of his injuries.
A High Court Judge found the Claimant guilty of Contempt, sentencing him to a fine and giving a judgment confirming that it was important that parties knew that lies told in Court proceedings would not be countenanced and that an element of deterrence was required.
