Teertha Gupta QC

4 Paper Buildings

Is never flustered and instils great confidence in clients.

A ‘first-rate set of chambers‘, 4 Paper Buildings is ‘without question, the go-to set for children matters’, according to clients. The set has ‘great strength in depth, a very good range of barristers at different levels of call, from hugely experienced QCs to extremely talented juniors, meaning it will always have a barrister who fits each client’s needs’. Alex Verdan QC, Sam King QC, Andrew Powell, Cleo Perry, and Michael Edwards  have been acting in the Independent Inquiry into child sexual abuse, the large public inquiry set to have huge implications on the way institutions deal with allegations of abuse. The set has many ‘excellent‘ barristers including Prof Jo Delahunty QC who ‘dominates every case she is in‘ and Teertha Gupta QC who is ‘a smooth, engaging, and highly persuasive advocate with a strong following‘. Charles Hale QC is ‘outstanding‘ and ‘judges really listen to Henry Setright QC because he invariably knows more on the subject than they do‘.
