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. We are ranked band 1 in international arbitration in the most recent Chambers UK Bar Guide and have been so for many years.
International disputes litigated in the UK courts or in international arbitrations make up a significant proportion of our work.
As a result we are experienced in interpreting and applying the law of other countries, we are accustomed to the practices and procedures laid down by all the main international arbitration institutions, and some members are qualified to appear as advocates before the courts and tribunals of other countries, both on an ad hoc and permanent basis.
We accept instructions from UK or international law firms, and can also be engaged directly by foreign law firms or clients.
