Fiona Parkin QC has been selected by the Lawyer in its 2015 ‘Hot 100’ list for the Bar

26th Jan 2015

It was published on 26th January 2015, with the following write up:

“Just three years into her career as a silk, Atkin Chambers’ Fiona Parkin QC is enjoying a purple patch, acting on a wide range of complex disputes in a critical sector – energy and natural resources. With the world’s need for oil and gas growing constantly and political and economic pressures impacting on prices, Parkin’s caseload is filling up as parties seek to make the most of the resources they own.

Such cases include last year’s successful claim for RWE NPower Renewables against an engineering firm in a claim related to the construction of a hydro-electric plant in Scotland.

But Parkin’s skills extend into other areas too. She is set for the Court of Appeal this year, defending the Government of Gibraltar in a complicated construction case against a Spanish contractor. It stands to test key provisions in the standard form contract used on construction projects worldwide. She will return to the appeal court for a second round in a professional negligence claim for Wellesley Partners against Withers.

Energy might be the overarching motif – but it is far from the only string to this silk’s bow.”
