4 Pump Court is a leading Commercial Litigation set and we are able to draw on sector-specific expertise across a wide range of industries.

We are known for having particular strengths in banking and financial services, commodities, construction and engineering, energy, insurance and reinsurance, shipping and shipbuilding, and technology and telecommunications.

Our barristers include some of the brightest and most highly regarded QCs and juniors at the Commercial Bar. We are recognised as leading advocates, able to combine mastery of complex technical and factual detail with powerful forensic analysis of difficult legal issues. For this reason, we are recognised as one of the few chambers with members equally proficient in both the Commercial Court and the Technology and Construction Court. Commercial disputes frequently involve urgent and time-critical issues and our barristers are adept at obtaining injunctive or other interlocutory relief.

Our barristers provide pragmatic strategic advice on legal problems. Our focus is always on achieving the best commercial outcome for our clients, whether through a negotiated or mediated settlement or following a hard-fought trial.

Our commercial barristers have long been at the forefront of international work at the Commercial Bar, with members often acting in complex multi-jurisdictional disputes. In addition to our litigation practice, we regularly appear in international arbitrations seated in multiple jurisdictions and in international commercial courts.
