4 New Square is recognised as one of the leading sets of chambers in commercial dispute resolution.

Members of Chambers regularly advise on, and appear in, complex and high-value disputes in the Commercial Court and the Chancery Division of the High Court, as well as in international commercial arbitrations and commercial courts overseas.

‘The practitioners here are in high demand, with instructing solicitors praising them for being “at the top of their game.”’ – Chambers Global 2021: Dispute Resolution: Commercial

‘4 New Square has ‘quality barristers from top to bottom’ and is ‘clearly a set that is expanding and becoming ever-more well-known.” – Legal 500, 2021 UK Bar Guide: Commercial Litigation

Members of Chambers’ expertise is widely drawn and includes disputes concerning banking, securities and derivatives, employment, commercial fraud, commercial agencies, M&A disputes, investments and investment schemes, contracts for the sale and hire of goods, partnership and LLP disputes, private international law, and personal and corporate insolvency.

Much of this commercial work has an international element to it and Members of Chambers have specific expertise in jurisdictional disputes and challenges. They also have wide experience of acting in respect of pre-emptive and interim applications for, among other things, freezing orders, search orders, pre-action disclosure and injunctions, including injunctions enforcing post-termination restrains in employment contracts, responding to team moves and restraining misuse of confidential information.

Both Chambers and individual Members of Chambers are consistently ranked in the legal directories as leaders in the field in commercial dispute resolution and related areas such as employment, banking and financial services. Junior Members of Chambers are frequently recognised as “Stars of the Bar” by the London industry press, as amongst the most talented junior barristers in practice at the Commercial and Chancery Bar.
