Tribunal Appointments

The experience that members and door tenants have in arguing and advising in relation to disputes means that they are in demand to act as arbitrators, adjudicators, mediators and more generally as members of dispute resolution panels.

While members primarily act as counsel in litigation, arbitration and adjudication, they may also accept appointments as arbitrator (both as chair and party-appointed) and adjudicator, or as a member of Dispute Adjudication Boards.

In addition to members, a number of highly-respected, senior international ADR practitioners are door tenants at Atkin Chambers including former judges and other legal professionals awarded and honoured by their peers and governments for their distinguished service to the law.

Arbitral appointment

Many members of Atkin Chambers and door tenants accept arbitral appointments convened by reference to the rules of all of the major international arbitral bodies. Where members or door tenants sit as part of an arbitral panel they are used to working effectively in what is frequently an international team. As a result, they have a familiarity with all of the well-known arbitral procedures and with the procedural and substantive complexities of many of the world’s legal systems.

Many members and door tenants are on international arbitrator panels such as those of the AIAC, AIFC, CIArb, DIFC, HKIAC, LCIA, QICCA and SIAC.

Adjudicators

As adjudicators they have experience of determining both small and large scale claims. Many members are Technology and Construction Bar Association (TECBAR) or CEDR accredited adjudicators. Others are frequently identified by name as designated adjudicators in large infrastructure projects. They appreciate the need for a speedy but fair determination.

Dispute Adjudication Boards

Members and door tenants are appointed as a member of permanent or ad hoc Dispute Adjudication Boards (DABs) designed to resolve disputes as they arise during projects under FIDIC contracts.
