A specialist set with 78 members, including 14 Queen's Counsel, Old Square Chambers provides advocacy, advice and drafting of the highest quality at trial and appellate level.
The defining quality of Old Square Chambers is excellence. This is the standard we set for ourselves in the delivery of services to our clients, and the criterion by which we assess prospective tenants. Many of our members hold part-time judicial positions, sit on specialist panels, act as mediators, and edit or contribute to leading practitioner texts.
Chambers & Partners 2018 commends Old Square Chambers for our outstanding quality of client service at the Bar:
William Meade, a veteran of the set for nigh on 25 years and Old Square’s senior clerk for nearly ten years, presides over a clerks room which attracts a wealth of praise from instructing solicitors. One interviewee says: “They are some of the best clerks I have come across.” Another source adds that “the level of service is pretty phenomenal,” while other impressed commentators appreciate that the clerking team will “bend over backwards and help as much as possible.”
Meade himself is singled out for praise, with one interviewee describing him as an “outstanding head clerk.” The excellence of others in the set’s clerking team is demonstrated in commentary which refers to Nick Salt, the medical team co-ordinator, as someone who “always takes great care when asked to fit the right counsel for the case.” Paul Adams also receives praise for being “very helpful and very amenable.” In relation to billing, instructing solicitors are pleased that the set is “flexible and transparent with fees.” Finally, sources also draw attention to the benefits of the quality seminars run by members of Old Square.
Our expertise covers eight areas of law: Employment & Discrimination, Professional Discipline, Personal Injury, Clinical Negligence, Product Liability, Environment, Health & Safety and Public Inquiries. We also have members who specialise in ADR / Mediation within those practice areas. We believe in teamwork and establishing long term working relationships with our clients.
