"A real powerhouse chambers"


New Square Chambers is proud to be home to several of the top ranked barristers for traditional chancery work in the high net worth field, including 'Star Individual' Lynton Tucker whose clients say: "he is a phenomenally good trust lawyer", "he has forgotten more about trusts than I will ever know". Also top ranked are Nicholas Le Poidevin QC (Band 1), who has "an encyclopaedic knowledge of trust law" and "is so extraordinarily accessible and easy to work with", and Alexander Learmonth (Band1), whose clients say "he is incredible", "he is recognised as a true specialist in this area" and "is a match for most silks on his feet".

New Square's leading individuals also include
 George Laurence QC (Band 2), who is "fearless", "finds more than one way to go ahead" and is "a joy to work with" and Mark Hubbard (Band 2) who is "extremely calm in court; he rises above provocation in a very statesmanlike way".

"I always see them in the big stuff,
and they have some really impressive people" 


New Square Chambers is delighted that its barristers’ outstanding reputations for first-class expertise and user-friendly approach are once again reflected in the HNW guide, and that the set's overall strength, enhanced by the clerking team’s commerciality and dedication to client care, is widely recognised.

"They have a very good clerk service there - extremely efficient"
