Matrix Chambers, the legal home of Cherie Booth and, according to the Legal 500, "arguably the finest concentration of talent at the Bar", finds itself the victim of cloning. The web site of these finely attuned legal minds has allegedly been commandeered by another outfit of possible lawyers, or possibly plain shysters. At least that is according to The Observer newspaper, which reported on Sunday that the fine legal minds of Matrix Chambers have resorted to legal action over the activities of Lando Attorneys who have allegedly cloned the entire look and feel of the Matrix Chambers website and a lot of he content too. As any legal advisor will tell you, taking legal action is last resort for any lawyer, but this has been prompted by the damage to Matrix Chambers' considerable reputation that could follow from any action. 'Matrix is very annoyed,' Lindsay Scott, Matrix's chief executive, told The Observer. 'They have cloned part of our website. Matrix is taking all appropriate action to ensure that the cloned site is taken down as soon as possible.'
