Atkin Chambers Barristers
We appear before a wide variety of tribunals.
Litigation: Much of the litigation conducted by members of chambers takes place in the Technology and Construction Court (TCC). However, members of chambers appear regularly in the Commercial Court (for example, cases relating to the exploration and exploitation of oil and gas and shipbuilding contracts and IT disputes) and occasionally in the Queen’s Bench Division and Chancery Divisions. Some senior members have appeared overseas.
Arbitration: In addition, much of the work done by members of Chambers is undertaken before arbitral tribunals. This work covers both the international and the domestic, and includes both institutional (e.g. ICC, LCIA, ICSID, HKIA and SIA) and ad hoc (e.g. UNCITRAL, CIMAR, ICE) arbitrations.
ADR: Mediation and other forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution also provide significant opportunities for advocacy work in the technology and construction fields. In the domestic construction field, work is undertaken in both as advocates in adjudication and before the TCC (and higher courts) in respect of enforcement proceedings.
