Fountain Court Chambers is applauded by clients as a 'go-to set for complex  aviation-related litigation' thanks to its offering of a 'strong spread of top-quality silks and juniors'. Bankim Thanki QC, Alexander Milner, Akhil Shah QC and David Murray, were involved in judicial review proceedings, brought by the administrators of Monarch Airlines, regarding the decision by the UK airport coordinator not to allocate or to reserve slots for Monarch for the summer 2018 season.
