International Work

Members of the Chancery Bar Association often undertake international work.

They are able to provide the following services to overseas clients:

  • appearing before courts and tribunals in foreign jurisdictions;
  • advising on dispute resolution;
  • acting as arbitrators and mediators;
  • acting as experts on English law in foreign courts and tribunals;
  • advising on English law, which is frequently adopted as the law governing transactions and relationships in an international context, and which may also be highly relevant to an understanding of other common law systems;
  • advising in relation to non-contentious matters which have an English law element.

There is more information for clients in our leaflet A Guide for International Lawyers and Clients or on the Bar Council's website.

The types of services which our members offer, and how foreign organisations can instruct them, are set out in the pages below.
