4 Stone Buildings is home to a number of excellent silks and junior barristers. Instructing solicitors say that there is “no one below par in the set. They are all very good.” The set itself has a long pedigree in the fraud world. It is an expert in company and insolvency matters and has for many years handled large cases that have spun off its interest in this area.
