4 Field Court

The article suggested that those barristers leaving 4 Field Court prior to its restructuring and relaunch as Stone Chambers were made to do so against their will. This report was published in good faith. We have now, however, learned that this was not the case and that those barristers who have left the set did so in the belief that their interests better lay elsewhere. In particular, Eoin O'Shea, Daphne Romney, James Thom and Stephen Wilson were all invited to join Stone Chambers but declined and James Thom is now at New Square Chambers not New Court Chambers as stated. Several of those who have left are specialists in the fields of shipping and commercial law. We are happy to take the earliest opportunity of correcting this error and we apologise to all the barristers named for any distress and embarrassment caused by the publication of the original article.
