An ‘impressive‘ set, 4 New Square‘s core strengths offshore mirror its leading status in London for professional discipline and professional negligence work. Justin Fenwick QC continues to represent the liquidators of Stanford International Bank in litigation against two onshore law firms, while Graham Chapman QC is involved both for and against offshore law firms and auditors in professional negligence cases. In addition, Nigel Burroughs and rising star Mark Cullen are key names in chambers with followings in the Isle of Man for a range of matters.
