A major highlight of the latest listings is our rating, once again, as a top tier set for Professional Negligence. According to Legal 500, “Four New Square is at the top of the tree for professional negligence matters” with clients singling out “excellent clerking” as one the key reasons for Chambers’ continued success in this area.
4 New Square continues to be regarded as a leading set in Construction, Costs, Insurance & Reinsurance and Product Liability, with our barristers described as forming “an extremely strong team, with a stunning breadth of activity”.
Chambers progress is also marked by the notable achievement of rankings in new areas.

In Justin Fenwick QC, Neil Hext and George Spalton we have 3 new barristers recognised in Commercial Litigation with Spalton also being ranked as a new leading junior in International Arbitration.
