THE CHAMBERS

4 New Square is a leading commercial set of barristers comprising 87 practitioners, 33 of whom are Queen’s Counsel. Barristers act as specialist advocates and advisers in a wide range of commercial disputes worldwide. The set also acts as an adviser in non contentious disputes. The size of Chambers and the range of experience of its members enables 4 New Square to put together balanced teams of counsel to suit the requirements of each individual case. The set has numerous international as well as academic connections.


WORK UNDERTAKEN

Members are consistently recommended for all types of commercial disputes, often with an international element. The reputation of Chambers is particularly strong in relation to claims involving professionals and insurance work as well as in respect to construction disputes, costs, financial services and banking, international arbitration, product liability, sports law as well as regulatory public law and human rights law. Chambers’ expertise in professional liability covers the full range of claims against professionals, not just for negligence but for fraud, breach of fiduciary duty and breach of trust, and disciplinary and regulatory proceedings. All main professions are covered by Chambers. Chambers has considerable experience in multi-party litigation in the context of civil fraud, product liability, professional negligence and disaster claims. In all those areas members of Chambers appear as advocates in the courts and arbitrations at home and in overseas jurisdictions.
