Australian arbitrator sets up shop in London
An Australian arbitrator has expanded from Hong Kong to London’s historic Middle Temple.

Arbitration Chambers, which was first established in 2012 by Gavin Denton, has opened its doors in the City. Denton, an Australian arbitrator originally from Perth, is the chairman of the ICC Australia Arbitration Committee.

Arbitration Chambers expects London to remain a leading global centre for international dispute resolution. The expansion to the City comes as many law firms and financial institutions have canned or delayed further investment into London after the Brexit vote.

Earlier this month, more than 150 arbitration professionals gathered for the opening of Arbitration Chambers in the Lamb Building in Middle Temple.

Since its founding, the chambers has already attracted leading figures in the arbitration space. Included in its ranks are Neil Kaplan, former judge of the High Court of Hong Kong; John Beechey, former president of the ICC International Court of Arbitration and the founder and former chair of Clifford Chance’s international arbitration practice; and Lord Hope of Craighead, former deputy president of the UK Supreme Court.

In addition to Denton, who is head of the organization, the chambers includes John Bishop, Juliet Blanch, Robert Pé, Bruce Collins, Andrew Aglionby, Matthieu de Boisséson, and Niels Schiersing.
