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, mediator, member of Dispute Adjudication Boards or expert in an expert determination.

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. They also welcome ADR appointments.

Please contact our dedicated clerk for arbitrator and other ADR appointments: Daniel Jones, ADR clerk,
