Members of Quadrant Chambers maintain busy commercial dispute practices and regularly receive an abundance of both domestic and international instructions. Recently members have acted in a slew of high-profile cases such as UTB v Sheffield United, concerning the ownership of that club, and ABN Amro Bank NV v Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance, which considered the duties of insurance brokers. Guy Blackwood QC was instructed in Integral Petroleum v Petrogat, a complex committal trial concerning the shipping of fuel oils to Iran in contempt of court. The barristers are highlighted for their commercial acumen and approachability. In the words of one instructing solicitor, "the barristers at Quadrant are some of the best you'll come across anywhere, and it's a modern set which goes out of its way to assist solicitors."
