Three years ago, the Queen opened the Rolls Building off Fetter Lane in the City. It's really quite impressive ? a swashbuckling specialist court centre for some of the world's best lawyers to litigate finance, business and property, much of it in the course of international litigation, attracted by the reputation the UK has won for its justice system. At its heart are lawyers of the highest probity and calibre in front of incorruptible judges providing impartiality and fairness to those who come before the court ? whoever they are.
