About Us

An unrivalled collection of the best talents currently at the Bar”. Legal 500

South Square is a leading set of commercial law barristers. Our members have acted in many of the most important restructuring, insolvency, banking, commercial, company and fraud-related disputes of recent times. 

Our world-class reputation is built on our track record in restructuring and insolvency, expertise in banking and finance, and ability to provide practical and commercial solutions. Our work extends beyond England and Wales, with members regularly appearing in courts and tribunals around the world, including the Caribbean, Bermuda, Dubai, Hong Kong and Singapore.

While our barristers are best known for their strong litigation-based practices, they also excel in non-contentious commercial, banking and restructuring issues.
