Atkin Chambers wins Queen’s Award for Enterprise for second time

21st Apr 2020

Atkin Chambers has, for the second time, been honoured with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade, the UK’s highest recognition for international business success.

“The barristers at Atkin Chambers have been at the forefront of major international infrastructure and energy disputes for many decades. Clients come to Atkin Chambers from across the globe for the expertise the barristers offer as advocates and as advisers in commercially significant and technically complex projects. This award recognises the quality of the barristers and the commitment and energy which the barristers and the clerking team bring to the work undertaken.” commented Chantal-Aimée Doerries QC, Head of Atkin Chambers.

“The vast majority of Chambers’ members regard working on international disputes – whether argued in London or overseas dispute resolution centres – as a significant part of their practices,” commented chief executive and director of clerking David Barnes. “The continuing demand globally is a reflection of the enduring value of the specialist knowledge and skills that English barristers offer. But it is also a reflection of the investment members and the clerking team at Atkin Chambers have made in getting to know and understand local markets and local clients in an increasing numbers of countries. The combination of that insight, knowledge and specialist skills is what enables members to help clients achieve the best possible outcome of any dispute.”

Atkin Chambers was the first set of barristers’ chambers to win the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade 15 years ago (2005). Its success in winning the award for the second time is a reflection of its barristers’ continued reputation and expertise in large international infrastructure and energy disputes.
