A specialist set with 80 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 2019 commends Old Square Chambers for our outstanding quality of client service at the Bar:
Old Square Chambers is ‘very well run and clerked’ according to impressed interviewees, and is praised for being ‘an extremely approachable set of chambers which puts a premium on service delivery.’ Sources particularly appreciate the clerks’ knowledge of practice areas and their ability to recommend counsel, noting that they are ‘well briefed on members’ areas of expertise,’ and ‘always able to make appropriate suggestions for barristers with the availability and skills needed for a given case.’ Senior clerk William Meade is highlighted by a number of instructing solicitors for his dedication to client service, drawing praise from interviewees who describe him as ‘very down to earth, easy to talk to, responsive and very good at understanding a client’s position.’ Sources go on to add: ‘Will Meade takes ongoing client relations very seriously and always makes himself available; he can be contacted at any hour.’ Other members of the team are also singled out for praise, such as team leaders’ assistant Olivia Moliterno, who receives accolades from several interviewees for her provision of a ‘top-drawer service’ and her ‘efficient and friendly’ approach. One instructing solicitor notes that ‘the set goes beyond other chambers in its service' adding that ‘nothing is ever too much trouble.’
The Legal 500 2018 also commends Chambers:
Old Square Chambers is ‘a go-to set for employment matters’, with ‘excellent counsel at all levels’. For some, chambers offers the best counsel around ‘in terms of value for money, availability and high-quality barristers’. While the set is well respected for its work on employment issues, it also houses ‘a decent roster’ of ‘talented’, ‘extremely knowledgeable’ personal injury counsel, and has ‘great set with depth’ in clinical negligence work; ‘they have someone who is right for each case’. Members are ably assisted by a group of ‘responsive clerks with very good knowledge of clients and practice areas. They offer the right barrister up for the right client’. ‘Nothing is ever too much trouble’ for the ‘fantastic, professional and slick’ clerking team led by ‘friendly, approachable and client-focused’ senior clerk William Meade; ‘he always listens to what you want and provides super service’. Deputy senior clerk Graham Smith is ‘highly regarded’; Jack Wheeler and Joe Kallas are both ‘excellent clerks’ who ‘always respond very quickly and provide an outstanding service’. Olivia Moliterno is singled out for praise and consultant Nick Salt is also a name to note. Chambers premises are ‘widely admired’ as a venue for conferences and settlement meetings.
