We are delighted to have been named ‘Professional Negligence Set of the Year’ at the Chambers UK Bar Awards 2021 last night. Congratulations to Helen Evans for winning Professional Negligence Junior of the Year.

In Chambers & Partners recent guide it was noted that Helen “is incredibly astute, not afraid to really get into the details of a case and excellent with clients.”

4 New Square is ranked as the top set for Professional Negligence by Chambers & Partners and is described this year as offering unparalleled capabilities in the area of professional negligence, regularly attracting key instructions for and against professionals in the legal, financial and insurance sectors. The set excels in any case involving advice on financial planning, investments, tax liability, property or the conduct of litigation. It is notable for its deft handling of the high-value and the legally complex, including a number of recent cases on limitation, or causation, or successor practices in claims against solicitors. The barristers have continued to appear in fora up to and including the Supreme Court in high-profile cases such as Re One Blackfriars and Matthew v Sedman. Instructing solicitors say: 

“4 New Square really is the pre-eminent set in professional liability work.”
