About The Chambers of Lawrence Power

4KBW is a dynamic civil law set of barristers’ chambers based in the Temple. Members of 4KBW undertake the full range of corporate civil work, with particular emphasis on commercial litigation. 4KBW prides itself on delivering excellence in all areas of service. Our practitioners are dedicated to applying the breadth of their expertise in the representation of clients’ interests, from skilled advisory work and tenacious negotiation to meticulous drafting and fearless advocacy.

4KBW is located in the Inner Temple and believed to be one of the oldest set of chambers in the historic Temple. King’s Bench Walk takes its name from the King’s Bench Office (the office of the chief clerk or master of the Court of King’s Bench) which was sited in the Inner Temple from 1621.


Seated across from the Inner Temple Library 4KBW has an  interesting history of its own. Following the Great Fire of  1666, Number Four was rebuilt in 1678 and bears an  inscription documenting these events, as well as an arching  brick doorway believed to have been designed by Sir  Christopher Wren, the architect who also designed St. Paul’s  Cathedral. It was also one of the few buildings in the Inner  Temple fortunate to have escaped destruction by the Blitz in  the early 1940s. In addition, the signature Thos Dainand  date ‘’March 19, 1793’’ has been scratched into one of the window panes of the first-floor library.
