Koye AkoniQuadrant ChambersHe is unflappable and calm under fire.

Quadrant Chambers has ‘considerable strength in aviation‘ with ‘very experienced members‘; it is praised by clients as a ‘responsive set that gets results‘. Key highlights for the set included Vandeputte v Egyptair, which was a significant claim arising out of the crash of Egyptair flight MS804. Here, Tim Marland acted for IATA as an intervener, John Ashley Kimbell QC appeared for Vandeputte, and Koye Akoni was instructed on behalf of Egyptair. Marland also led Akoni in Bahamasair v Messier Dowty, an appeal to the Privy Council from the Court of Appeal of the Bahamas, which involved allegations that a landing gear was defective.
