Members advise on all aspects of international trade, commerce and finance with specialist expertise in banking, competition, shipping, arbitration, insurance, energy, insolvency, public international law and European Community law.
In light of the increasingly international practices of its members, the set opened an office in Maxwell Chambers in January 2010 (tel: +65 62257230). Simon Milnes, Ben Olbourne and Nakul Dewan are currently practising from the office in Singapore and other members of chambers travel there regularly in support of their international practices.
