Old Square Chambers are rapidly becoming one of the leading insurance sets advising a number of our key clients on Defendant Insurance related issues. The leading practitioners, such as Barry Cotter and the Senior Clerk, have taken the time to understand not only our business imperatives but also those of our key clients. Chambers contain an excellent pool of Defendant Insurance specialists offering a reliable and intelligent advice. The approachable and excellent Barry Cotter remains a leading adviser to the Insurance Industry and is embedded in many of our Insurer client’s service offerings to their key corporate clients.
William Meade, Senior Clerk, has recognised that commercial clients expect more from their legal providers than legal advice. Cost effective, commercial solutions continues to be the focus for William and his team coupled with a consistent and timely service. His user friendly team is sensitive to the needs of our clients and our individual lawyers.
I am always impressed by the quality and commitment of Old Square's team of employment barristers. They not only have an excellent grasp of the law but also of the practical and industrial realities of life in the workplace. The support provided to clients by the clerks is of a consistently high standard, friendly and accommodating.
Head of Employment Rights Unit
I have used Old Square Chambers for over 10 years now – they set the standard when it comes to providing an effective service. When we use them we can be confident we will get the Counsel we have chosen rather than someone swapped with our first choice, that papers e.g. Opinions from their Counsel, will arrive back with us on time rather than late and that fee estimates are accurate and delivered on time. They understand the complexities of managing complex employment and labour litigation and work closely with us so that the client gets the right solution - delivered on time and on budget - the clerks are friendly, get to know their instructing solicitors and go the extra mile when they have to.
Practice Group Head, Human Resources Group
Over the years barristers at Old Square Chambers, led by the redoubtable John Hendy, have won many cases for me, some very difficult. The barristers are always approachable, eager to advise on difficult legal problems and very good with clients.

Health and Safety and Environmental
Old Square Chambers provide a first class commercial service in safety, health and environmental matters. They are responsive, pragmatic and approachable and always sensitive to the reputational issues at stake for our clients. Their turn around of their papers is excellent. Always good when the time scales are short and the demands are high.
Head of SHE Group and Partner
I have found the barristers I have used at Old Square Chambers give excellent advice on the cases I handle. Instructions are dealt with quickly and efficiently and the advice received is excellent both in terms of content and the way it is presented. The barristers I have used have all been very approachable and are always happy to discuss cases over the phone if needed. The wealth of experience available at Chambers in dealing with clinical negligence claims ensures that I receive specialist advice from a highly skilled team.
