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.
