THE CHAMBERS 3 Verulam Buildings is one of the foremost sets of barristers’ chambers specialising in commercial law, with 95 members based in London and with many highly prominent legal practitioners across the world. Members advise and represent clients in court, arbitration and other tribunals in England, other jurisdictions worldwide and internationally. 3VB’s approachable and responsive members and practice managers understand the pressures on solicitors and clients and the importance of providing a superb quality of service, in which legal excellence is combined with a commercial attitude.

WORK UNDERTAKEN 3VB has a genuine depth of experience across the full range of commercial litigation, from banking and financial services to company law, insurance, professional negligence, insolvency, commercial fraud, IT and media and entertainment. Its members are regularly instructed by the leading law firms in the major pieces of commercial litigation of the day, and often act in teams on various sides of major disputes. Chambers has a strong reputation in domestic and international arbitration, including significant experience of investment treaty disputes and cases involving energy, natural resources and infrastructure. 3VB has substantial experience of international work, in both litigation and arbitration. Members are frequently instructed by lawyers from other jurisdictions and are accustomed to working in multi-jurisdictional teams. They have particular experience of disputes arising in the Caribbean, the Gulf States, the post-Soviet states and the Asia-Pacific region. As well as acting as counsel, many of its members and impressive array of international associate members sit as arbitrators, under all the major arbitration rules. 3VB’s members also undertake non-contentious work, such as drafting terms and conditions in contracts for financial institutions and commercial clients, and advising clients on the effects of new law.

RECRUITMENT 3VB offers up to four pupillages a year and also considers applications as lateral hires from barristers with established, excellent practices.
