A leading set specialising in commercial, construction, insurance and property law


Arbitration is a core part of our international and domestic commercial work.  Our barristers are regularly instructed to act as advocates in the arbitration of a wide range of commercial disputes, including shipping and trade disputes, construction and engineering, insurance and reinsurance, utilities, intellectual property, product liability and franchising.

We have experience of various domestic and international arbitral regimes including ICC, LCIA, UNCITRAL, GAFTA, FOSFA, LMAA, DIAC, SIAC, HKIAC and CIMAR and ad hoc references.

As well as acting in arbitrations, we deal with all kinds of disputes relating to the conduct of arbitrations themselves, such as jurisdiction challenges, the validity and interpretation of arbitration agreements, challenges to the conduct of arbitrations, applications to remove arbitrators, the enforcement of arbitral awards and appeals to the Courts.

A number of our barristers are also accredited arbitrators and are able to accept appointments from various nominating bodies or on an ad hoc basis.  For more information please visit our Arbitration page.
