What this questionnaire is about

A number of local practitioners have formed a group to call for new and better facilities for the Business and Property Courts (BPCs) in Leeds.

In the City and its surrounding area, we have a key commercial hub with the legal requirements of many businesses been met by dedicated solicitors and barristers in commercial firms and chambers together with experienced judges all working within the local BPC.

But is the quality of the manpower met by the facilities on the ground which the local BPC Court premises offer?  For example, the conference facilities and the available IT?
