Quadrant Chambers is to launch an arbitration division with the appointment of retired High Court judge Sir David Steel.
Sir David Steel
Steel was appointed to the bench in 1999 after a stint as head of Quadrant, which was then known as 2-4 Essex Court. He last week retired from his position as an admiralty judge and joined chambers this week.
His return to the bar will mark a new direction for the maritime set, which is looking to broaden its base and build up an arbitration following under its subsidiary unit Arbitrators at 10 Fleet Street.
Steel has also been appointed as Lloyd’s Open Forum (LOF) appeal arbitrator for the London insurance market for cases arising under the Lloyd’s Form of Salvage Agreement. He succeeds Mr Justice Teare, who has held the position since 2009.
