Thank you to our colleagues and clients for the excellent feedback again:   


5 Paper Buildings is commended as a set whose barristers are regularly instructed in the major cases of the day including those relating to murder, sexual offences, terrorism, gang-related crime and firearms offences. In addition to general and serious crime, the set also handles financial crime, football corruption and European Arrest Warrant work. Sources praise this chambers for having "significant strength in depth."

"Senior clerk Dale Jones and his team are amazing. They will bend over backwards to accommodate my requests and are always on hand to assist no matter what day or what time it is. It is a real pleasure to work with them."

Financial Crime:

5 Paper Buildings is a well-regarded criminal set housing a strong bench of barristers who are regularly called upon to prosecute complex financial crime cases. Areas of expertise for the team include international bribery and corruption conspiracies, tax avoidance schemes and matters involving allegations of collusion in the financial sector. The set's members also have experience of acting for the defence.

The set's senior clerk Dale Jones is "very helpful and pragmatic."
