Atkin Chambers arbitrator Professor Doug Jones AO appointed as an International Judge of the Singapore International Commercial Court (SICC)

10th Oct 2019

Professor Douglas Jones AO has been appointed to sit as an International Judge in the Singapore International Commercial Court (for the period 1 November 2019 to 4 January 2021).

Professor Jones will continue to practice as an international arbitrator from Atkin Chambers in London, Sydney Australia and from Toronto, Canada.

Professor Jones is highly-regarded as an international arbitrator, particularly in construction and energy disputes. Chambers Asia-Pacific had recognised him as the leading Asia-Pacific Arbitrator for construction disputes. In 2018, he maintained his Band One ranking in the Chambers Asia-Pacific International arbitration category for an eighth consecutive year. In the same year, he was identified as one of the 10 most highly-regarded arbitration practitioners in London and a leader in construction disputes.

David Barnes, chief executive and director of clerking, commented that “Chambers is delighted by Professor Jones’ appointment as an International Judge of the Singapore International Commercial Court.  This appointment reflects the esteem in which he is held and it will be balanced with his existing practice as an internationally renowned arbitrator”.

  • Upon his retirement from Clayton Utz in 2014, Professor Jones became a full time independent International Arbitrator. His appointments in a number of professional bodies include President of the International Academy of Construction Lawyers; Past President, Chartered Arbitrator, and one of four Companions, of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators; and Fellow of Resolution Australia, and of the Arbitrators & Mediators Institute of New Zealand.
