Selborne Chambers (Chambers of Mark Warwick QC)

Position

Ian took silk in 2016, shortly after his appointment to the Attorney-General’s A Panel of Counsel. Ian is ranked in both Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500 for his expertise in the core areas of his practice: Commercial, Real Estate/Property litigation, Professional negligence and Private client (wills and trusts). Rated as “one of the finest advocates; fiendishly clever, with an excellent eye for detail” and for being “calm, affable, tactically astute, and most of all a persuasive advocate”, he is also commended for building a good rapport with clients, with whom “[he] engages well…. and has his own particular style – direct, to the point and with good humour”. His practice in this jurisdiction, the Caribbean and Gibraltar involves substantial commercial contractual disputes; issues of fraud, trusts/probate, insolvency and professional negligence and conflict of laws. He also regularly undertakes instructions relating to land (especially on land registration matters) and mortgages (on which he co-edits one of the two practitioner texts). He has acted as an expert in foreign proceedings. He has been a part-time judge since 2004 and a fellow of the CIArb since 1997.
