Anthony Temple came to 4 Pump Court in January 1970 as a pupil, and joined Chambers after pupillages with Ted Laughton-Scott (later Judge Laughton-Scott KC) and Swinton Thomas (later Lord Justice Thomas). He practised in a great range of cases before almost every court and tribunal – cutting his teeth on the Western Circuit (mainly crime, personal injury, landlord and tenant, divorce) and at courts-martial before concentrating on London (insurance and reinsurance, defamation, betting and gaming, casino licensing, commercial arbitration, commercial fraud, and financial regulation – acting for Lloyds, the Bank of England, the Stock Exchange) together with practice internationally.

After 45 years, 30 of them in silk, he has decided to retire from the bar: ‘I owe a great debt to many who have helped and encouraged me over the years, including so many supportive solicitors and engaging clients. It has been an honour and a pleasure to work with them at 4 Pump Court, the ethos, friendship and quality of which I will miss greatly.’
