Recently, Justin Fenwick QC and Graham Chapman QC represented Oleg Deripaska and Lolita Danilina respectively in their dispute with Vladimir Chernukhin and others in a major trial before the Commercial Court. Lucy Colter was Fenwick's junior on the case.

An 'approachable and friendly set' that is 'more accessible than quite a few of the Chancery sets', 4 New Square handles a mixture of work in the offshore space, with a stronger focus than others on professional regulatory proceedings and negligence claims against auditors and other professionals, on top of the typical company and insolvency matters. Justin Fenwick QC continues to represent the liquidators of Stanford Bank in Antiguan proceedings against two international law firms following the collapse of the notorious Ponzi scheme. Graham Chapman QC represented a defendant fund manager in a case in the Isle of Man, and represents a law firm in professional negligence case in the Cayman Islands.
