Arbitration

Twenty Essex has a long history and solid reputation in international arbitration, with members regularly appointed to act as counsel or arbitrator.

As counsel, members are instructed in a broad range of arbitrations globally and regularly practice in both existing and developing arbitral seats worldwide. Individuals across a broad range of call years are available to act as sole counsel or in teams in institutional and ad-hoc arbitrations spanning a variety of sectors.

Members have extensive experience of advising clients on commercial, investor-State and state-to-state arbitrations. They are instructed by clients on arbitrations under a broad spectrum of civil and common laws as well as public international law. Members also recognise the importance of enforcement of arbitral awards and have an excellent track record in assisting with enforcement around the world.

Twenty Essex is also home to 18 full-time highly respected international arbitrators, a number of whom were previously judges in the UK or overseas. These include some of the most renowned names in international arbitration from around the globe, including Professor Julian D M Lew KC, Sir Bernard Rix, The Honourable L Yves Fortier KC and J William Rowley KC. Many of the senior barristers, including Duncan Matthews KC, Timothy Young KC, Sara Masters KC and Michael Collett KC, also have substantial arbitrator practices with expertise and experience of all the key institutions and ad hoc.

While Twenty Essex has arbitrators based in both London and Singapore, the arbitrators accept sole, party and chair appointments from institutions and parties all over the world, and practise in a wide variety of arbitral seats. Twenty Essex’s arbitrators are members of all leading arbitral Institutions (for example, ICC, LCIA, SIAC, HKIAC, DIAC, AAA, LMAA and ICSID) and many hold leading positions in various international arbitral bodies.
