Outer Temple Chambers’ team of specialist barristers act in all aspects of company and partnership law. We are instructed in both contentious and transactional corporate matters, and in both the UK and internationally. Our clients range from multinational corporations and SMEs, to directors and shareholders.

Our members are consulted as truly “trusted” advisers in delicate company and partnership disputes, with clients recognising the need not just for intellectual creativity but also commerciality and sound strategic judgment in often sensitive situations. Our members’ international perspectives and diverse range of backgrounds and expertise have enabled them to fulfil that “trusted” adviser role on numerous occasions and for many clients around the globe.

  • Shareholder disputes and activism
  • Directors’ duties and corporate governance
