Why instruct Old Square Chambers?

Public sector law can encompass a broad spectrum of the law, and it's vital to instruct the right barristers.

Members have been appointed to the Attorney-Generals’ various panels of Counsel including regional and A-panels and have appeared in some of the most significant and high-profile litigation brought against the Government. We have the knowledge and experience to inspire trust in our clients.
