Position

Caroline joined Atkin Chambers as a tenant in September 2019, following the successful completion of her pupillage. Caroline has seen a broad range of construction and general commercial work at all stages of litigation, adjudication and arbitration. Her work has involved bespoke and standard form contracts including JCT, NEC, FIDIC, RIBA and ACE forms.

Caroline’s recent instructions include full trials in the County Court and applications in the High Court, both in person and remotely during lockdown. She is currently being led in two high-value international Arbitrations relating to major infrastructure projects in the Middle East. At the end of 2019, a secondment to the construction and dispute resolution team of an international law firm provided an insight into the commercial decisions employers and contractors face over the course of a project and the focused real-time advice they require.

Caroline graduated from the University of Oxford with a First-Class law degree and a Distinction on the BCL, and gained a distinction on the Bar Professional Training Course. Before starting pupillage, Caroline lived and worked in China and has conversational spoken and written Mandarin.
