Manus McMullan QC named International Arbitration Silk of the Year

27th Oct 2017

Atkin Chambers is pleased to announce that Manus McMullan QC has been named International Arbitration Silk of the Year at the 2017 Chambers UK Bar Awards.

Considered one of the leading practitioners at the commercial bar, Manus McMullan continues to act in a number of major arbitrations all across the world with current high-profile disputes in Europe, the Middle East, the Americas and Asia Pacific.  He acts in both commercial and in investor-state arbitrations.  He also continues with his court practice in the United Kingdom and Ireland.  In May this year he won in the Court of Appeal in Persimmon Homes Limited and Others v Ove Arup & Partners Limited and Another, an important case dealing agreements limiting or excluding liability.

Many of Manus’ cases are confidential in nature but it is well publicised that one of his engagements is as lead counsel on what has been described as the biggest infrastructure dispute in the world – the Panama Canal Third Set of Locks Project dispute. A series of arbitrations are ongoing in which over USD$5bn is claimed.  In July 2017 the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) notified a final award in favour of the Panama Canal Authority (for whom Manus is acting) in the first of the arbitrations, dismissing the claim entirely and awarding his client over USD$22m in costs.  Manus is instructed as lead advocate on all the remaining claims.

In 2016 Manus won Construction Silk of the Year at the Chambers UK Bar Awards. In 2015 he won Energy and Construction Barrister of the Year at the Legal 500 Bar Awards. Manus had previously won Chambers and Partners Construction Junior of the Year three times.
