An impressive set with noted expertise in commercial chancery matters. Instructing solicitors are quick to praise Radcliffe Chambers' insolvency offering, while its strong bench of barristers also offers considerable strength in high-stakes banking, civil fraud and securities matters. International disputes concerning commercial trusts are also a key area of strength for the team. Recent work undertaken by the set's members includes Popely v Popely, a high-value action brought against the 'de facto' director of an offshore company.
