The Chambers:
Atkin Chambers is a leading set of barristers with an international reputation for providing advocacy and specialist legal advice on commercial disputes particularly in relation to construction and engineering, technology, energy and infrastructure projects. Disputes are extremely varied and include transport, power, water/sanitation, shipbuilding and offshore construction, and social infrastructure projects. Wider commercial and professional negligence work is frequently related to such disputes.

The members of Atkin Chambers are recognised as being leaders in their field in the UK and globally, and rank highly in the main legal directories for construction, engineering and infrastructure, energy and natural resources, IT and telecoms, and international arbitration.
