Leading international arbitration practitioner to join Twenty Essex: Baiju Vasani

Twenty Essex announces that Baiju Vasani has accepted an offer of tenancy with Chambers which will commence upon his completion of BSB transfer qualification. A further announcement will follow at that time.

Baiju is a leader in international commercial arbitration and public international law, fields in which he has practised for the last 20 years. Until February 2022, Baiju split his time between Moscow and London. Prior to that he led the international arbitration practice as a partner in a major American law firm in the US and London. He has acted as counsel and sat as arbitrator under the rules of every major international arbitration institution worldwide, and is a Senior Fellow at SOAS, University of London, where he teaches international arbitration.

His investment law experience has been at the forefront of the intersection of international arbitration and public international law, having acted as lead counsel on seminal cases on treaty succession, disputed territories, and the effect of alleged illegality on arbitral jurisdiction.

Duncan Matthews QC, Head of Twenty Essex, says: “We are very excited to welcome Baiju to Chambers. He is rightly held in great esteem amongst his clients and colleagues. His extensive experience and expertise will complement and further enhance the Set’s leading status in international arbitration and public international law.”

Baiju says: “After twenty years in law firm life in the UK, US, and Russia, including twelve years as an international arbitration partner, it is exciting to be able to offer my services as counsel and arbitrator from the Bar with all the flexibility that offers. I consider Twenty Essex’s depth in international arbitration and public international law is second to none. I look forward to commencing my tenancy with Chambers as soon as possible and working with friends and colleagues around the world on cutting edge commercial and investment arbitration matters.”

Twenty Essex continues to strengthen and expand across all its areas of practice. Baiju will be the eleventh new practitioner to join Chambers within the past year.
