Atkin Chambers was the first ever UK chambers to win the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in international trade, the UK’s highest recognition for international business success, and it won the award for the second time in 2020. Chambers is ranked band 1 in international arbitration in the most recent Chambers UK Bar Guide and has been so for many years. It is also a founding member and supporter of London International Disputes Week (LIDW).
International disputes litigated in the UK courts or in international arbitrations make up a significant proportion of members’ work.
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. Some members are qualified to appear as advocates before the courts and tribunals of other countries, on both an ad hoc and a permanent basis.
Members accept instructions from UK or international law firms, and can also be engaged directly by foreign law firms or clients.
