Legal 500 describes 4 New Square as:
‘The doyen’ of professional negligence sets, 4 New Square stands ‘head and shoulders above similar chambers’ with ‘good bench strength and some excellent leaders’. It also has ‘strength in depth from junior to silk level’ in professional indemnity and insurance policy coverage issues, and is ‘fast becoming one of the leading sets in sports law’, according to instructing solicitors. The ‘well-respected‘ sports law practice was ‘boosted‘ by Kendrah Potts’s arrival from Mishcon de Reya LLP last year, while the international arbitration practice has been strengthened with the arrival of Jonathan Worboys from Henderson Chambers and Jordan-based senior advocate Aiman Odeh, who has joined as a door tenant. Also of note, Siân Mirchandani QC and Daniel Saoul QC took silk in 2019. The ‘dynamic’ chambers also has a ‘very effective and responsive clerking team’ which exhibits a ‘can-do attitude’ and is ‘a significant part of the set’s offering’. The ‘highly responsive, pragmatic, and sensible’ team is headed by ‘terrific’ CEO and senior clerk Lizzy Stewart and deputy senior clerks Alex Dolby (‘reliable and efficient’) and Dennis Peck (‘knows the ropes’), who together are all ‘first rate’; ‘nothing is too much for them’ and ‘the service provided by the clerks is one of the reasons chambers is a cut above the rest’. Special mention is also due Andrew Call who ‘provides a fantastic client service’. The clerking team has been strengthened with the arrival of Adam Marr from 7BR. Offices in: London
