A number of members of Chambers have built up expertise as advocates and arbitrators in domestic and international arbitration and have appeared before a wide variety of tribunals and courts in jurisdictions around the world – including all the main arbitral centres: whether Singapore, Hong Kong, Dubai, Mumbai, Geneva, Stockholm, London, Paris or The Hague. This expertise is recognised in profiles of members in both Chambers & Partners and Legal 500.
The experience extends across the commercial spectrum, ranging from construction claims, insurance and reinsurance matters, energy and utilities, civil fraud, banking, commodities and international trade. Experience also includes acting in investment treaty arbitrations – whether under the auspices of ICSID or otherwise, both for or against investors and states.
Equally, we have experience of claims run under an extremely broad range of domestic and international institutions such as the ICC, LCIA, HKIAC, SIAC, DIAC, CIETAC and ICSID, as well as ad hoc arbitrations under UNCITRAL and other rules.
Those members of Chambers who sit as arbitrators include individuals who combine their practice as counsel with arbitral appointments as well as individuals who sit exclusively as arbitrators. These include former members of the judiciary and former partners in international arbitration practices at major law firms. All of our arbitrators have extensive experience of acting as sole arbitrators and panel chairs, in addition to serving as members of multi-member tribunals. All of our arbitrators will accept appointments to hear disputes governed by the laws of other jurisdictions. Several are admitted to practice in jurisdictions outside England & Wales.
