No5 Barristers Chambers’ commercial litigation team ‘offers considerable choice at all levels of experience’. Chambers as a whole has a broad commercial practice and members are regularly instructed in high-value, complex disputes. Head of chambers Mark Anderson QC's recent instructions include a £20m partnership claim. Mohammed Zaman QC has also been busy, having recently defending a food manufacturing company in a dispute concerning an alleged breach of a manufacturing agreement, involving a six-day application for committal of the defendant's managing director to prison for contempt of court.
