Robert Weekes – Blackstone Chambers ‘ Fantastic attention to detail and is sensibly aggressive based on a very deep understanding of the law – a great choice for difficult cases where arbitration intersects with court based applications ’
Blackstone Chambers has several leading silks who are highly sought after for major international disputes. This expertise extends to investment treaty arbitrations, where public international law specialists such as Maurice Mendelson QC are held in particularly high regard. Other members of note include Andrew Hunter QC, who has been representing a Chinese alumina supplier in a London Metals Exchange arbitration, and Robert Howe QC , who is instructed on a set of LCIA arbitrations involving a $650 million shareholder dispute linked to the development of a Caribbean island. Among the juniors, Robert Weekes has built up an extremely good track record in this area.
