Juliet BlanchArbitration Chambers

Arbitration Chambers is a ‘very strong set‘ with ‘top draw’ arbitrators who ‘cover all the bases in terms of sector and regional experience and expertise‘. The set specialises in full-time arbitrators and is not affiliated with any barrister’s chambers. It has managed to carve out a strong niche in the field, with offices in Hong Kong, London and New York.  Leading names include John Beechey CBE, the the former president of the ICC International Court of Arbitration, Neil Kaplan, former Chairperson of the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre and judge in charge of the construction and arbitration list in the Hong Kong courts, Juliet Blanch, and Niels Schiersing, a leading Scandinavian arbitrator with strong links to the Asian and African markets.
