Company and insolvency in Regional Bar

No5 Barristers' Chambers

The market presence and strength of No5 Barristers’ Chambers’ company and insolvency team members see the set involved with significant high-value cases in the Midlands. Mark Anderson QC continues to attract complex shareholder disputes, while Yasmin Yasseri is considered an insolvency specialist with recent instructions including a multi-jurisdictional matter with elements in the Czech Republic. Alexander Heylin’s experience with cross-border and Offshore instructions has led recent instructions acting for a Russian company with litigation potentially in three jurisdictions.



‘One of the best chambers that I have used. Barristers are of a high calibre and the clerks are fantastic and always respond in a timely manner.’

‘No5 is a very good set with a wide range of able performers. The Chambers are continuing to develop and they are a rising force.’
