Adam Chapman, the head of public law at top London firm Kingsley Napley, has found himself at the centre of a storm for spelling ‘Middlesbrough’ wrong in a court document.
Chapman (pictured above) misspelled the proud town’s name in a judicial review claim form submitted to the High Court on behalf of his client, Cleveland Police Chief Constable Sean Price, whose misconduct hearing will commence tomorrow.
“[Chapman’s claim form] gave the authority’s address as ‘Police Headquarters, Ladgate Lane, Middlesborough’, [yet] Cleveland Police’s website lists the address as ‘Cleveland Police Headquarters… Ladgate Lane, Middlesbrough’.
The paper then proceeded to name Chapman and his place of work:
“The claim form was signed by Mr Price’s solicitor Adam Chapman, who works for London law firm Kingsley Napley. Mr Price’s address was listed as “c/o Kingsley Napley LLP”.
Really, you’d have expected more from an Oxford man…
