28 March 2024

We are delighted to announce that 4 New Square Chambers’ presence in high-profile international commercial and construction disputes has been recognised in the Legal 500 EMEA Guide 2024.

Chambers is newly ranked as a leading set for commercial disputes in The Legal 500 EMEA Middle East: The English Bar and continues to be ranked as a leading set in construction, reflecting our outstanding work and impressive strategic growth in these areas.

2024 also sees new individual rankings for Richard Liddell KC, who is ranked as a leading commercial silk, and Neil Hext KC, who is recognised as a leading construction silk. Richard is recognised for his handling of substantial DIFC, LCIA and ICC arbitration claims and clients say “he is a pleasure to work with. He becomes part of the team on matters we have instructed him on and is very responsive. Richard’s key strengths include his meticulous attention to detail and his advocacy skills”. Neil is described by clients as, “bright, hard-working, well-prepared, persuasive and an excellent cross-examiner“.

Roger Stewart KC once again appears as a top-ranked Construction silk and Tim Chelmick continues to be ranked in Tier 1 for both Construction and Commercial disputes.

Congratulations to all our members listed this year and thank you to our clients who provided feedback to Legal 500 during their research period.
