In the title compound, C16H13ClO4, the two benzene rings make a dihedral angle of 86.38 (8)°. In the crystal, intermolecular C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link the molecules to form columns along the a axis. The molecules are also stabilized by a π–π stacking interaction, with a centroid–centroid distance of 3.7793 (10) Å between the inversion-related benzene rings.
