The London Chapter of Arbitration Ireland is a collection of Irish and international professionals with a shared interest in promoting Ireland as a seat.

London Chapter of Arbitration Ireland

The London Chapter of Arbitration Ireland was set up in 2017 to provide a means by which Irish and other professionals working in London could collaborate to promote Ireland as a seat for arbitration. This is achieved by meetings, communication and networking.
Events to-date have included a launch party and more recently, an address by Mr Justice David Barniville, designated Arbitration Judge of the High Court of Ireland to an audience of members and guests of the London Chapter. This took place at The Royal Automobile Club on Pall Mall in March 2019.
