International arbitration

Monckton Chambers boasts considerable experience conducting arbitrations with the major arbitral institutions and rules (including ICC, LCIA, CIArb, LMAA, HKIAC, SCC, SIAC and ICAC (Russia) Rules).

Chambers has been particularly involved, both as counsel and arbitrators, in investment treaty arbitrations, arbitrations regarding utility and telecoms regulation and arbitrations involving Indian, Russian and CIS law.

We are uniquely well placed to deal with arbitrations which raise regulatory, economic and competition law issues. In addition, Chambers’ arbitration practice also reflects its broader Commercial Dispute Resolution expertise, with Members acting in arbitrations involving aviation, banking, civil fraud, shareholder disputes, energy and natural resources, shipping, commodities and sport.

Members act in arbitration-connected proceedings in the English courts such as applications for interim relief, challenges to arbitral awards and enforcement proceedings.

Barristers at Monckton Chambers are also qualified members of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, and are members or sit on the panels of several leading arbitration institutions, including LCIA, HKIAC, AIAC, AIFC-IAC (Kazakhstan), and ICC.
