Chambers & Partners spotlight on International arbitration expertise in Asia-Pacific7th Dec 2017
Several members of Atkin Chambers are listed in the Chambers Asia-Pacific directory for International Arbitration (English Bar):
David Barnes, Chief Executive and Director of Clerking, commented: “The members of Atkin Chambers have an affinity with Asia having worked there over several decades on some landmark projects and with many, if not most, of the significant law firms in the region. Advocacy skills and specialist advice – particularly early in any contractual or dispute process – remain an extremely valuable resource for clients, the more so as the global landscape increases in complexity and the stakes in terms of the sheer scale and ambition of some of the projects being undertaken are so high for all concerned.
“International disputes litigated in the UK courts or in international arbitrations make up a significant proportion of members’ work at Atkin Chambers. As a result, members are experienced in interpreting and applying the law of other countries and are accustomed to the practices and procedures laid down by all the main international arbitration institutions.”
