Chancery: Commercial

Chambers UK Bar, 2024

4 Stone Buildings is an impressive chancery set, housing a strong bench of barristers at both senior and junior level who are well versed in high-profile and complex disputes. The team’s expertise spans a wide range of areas, and its members routinely undertake cases involving financial services and banking, commercial contracts and insolvency law. Shareholder disputes are also a key area of strength for the team, drawing on the set’s established expertise in company law. The set’s barristers are regularly instructed in litigation arising in the oil and gas sector, and have experience of acting in both domestic and international matters. As testament to their skill they have recently been involved in some major cases including Re the Will of the late HRH Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh, and Marex Financial Ltd v Carlos Sevilleja Garcia. They have also had continued engagement in the high profile Autonomy Corporation v Dr Michael Lynch matter. Commentators say that “comprehensive, commercial and strategic advice is always received from this set. Its barristers are intelligent and highly approachable.”
