The article reports that Brick Court Chambers has both won and lost a case that could prevent companies from outsourcing work in other parts of the European Union in order to take advantage of lower wages. Lawyer Mark Brealey found himself competing with fellow Brick Court tenant Charles Hollander in the case which determined whether a union could take industrial action over a shipping line's crew's pay and loss of employment.
