Arbitration

Members of 4 New Square Chambers are leading advocates and arbitrators in domestic and international arbitration and have appeared before a variety of tribunals and courts.

Chambers is nominated  for ‘International Arbitration Set of the Year’ (2022) in the Legal 500 Bar Awards.

‘4 New Square “is becoming one of the top sets for commercial international arbitration now and their expertise in public international law is making them increasingly a go-to set for investment arbitrations too”. A healthy mix of experienced silks and juniors, several of which are former solicitors, has seen the set establish an increasingly strong presence in the market.’ – Legal 500

‘‘A forward-looking and internationally minded chambers’ that is ‘modern and unstuffy’…  the set is ‘fast becoming a household name’ in international arbitration.” – Legal 500

Members have appeared before, or presided over, various 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 UK and Global, Legal 500 and Legal 500 UAE and Who’s Who Legal.

Members of Chambers’ international arbitration expertise extends across the commercial spectrum, ranging from JV and shareholder disputes, energy and utilities, civil fraud, banking and finance, commodities, IT and technology, telecommunications, construction claims, pharmaceuticals, professional negligence, insurance and reinsurance matters, sports, and international trade.

Our barristers and arbitrators have experience of claims run under an extremely broad range of domestic and international institutions, including the AAA, HKIAC, LCIA, ICC, CIETAC, SIAC, DIAC, and subject to all of the major arbitral rules, including UNCITRAL, LMAA, GAFTA, and CIArb.

Harnessing their public international law practices, Members of Chambers have particular expertise in acting in investment treaty arbitrations – whether under the auspices of ICSID or otherwise, both for or against investors and states. A number of our Members of Chambers hold academic posts, teaching investment treaty law and arbitration in leading universities around the world.
