“New Square Chambers is one of the top chambers for contentious trusts and probate work. It has a fantastic mix of barristers at all levels. Availability of counsel is very good, although mostly on the junior end because their more established barristers are in such high demand.”

“New Square Chambers has fantastic collection of experienced private client practitioners.”

“New Square Chambers is proactive and are stealing a march on some of the more traditional chancery sets with ease of interaction, willingness to provide added value and in speed of response.”

“We have always found dealing with New Square Chambers easy and hassle-free. The clerks are engaging and helpful and the set has a particular strength in property litigation. Our perception is that their set is dynamic and forward thinking in their approach to client care and PR.”
